Pink Triangle

The Pink Triangle symbol originated in Nazi Germany, where a downward-pointing pink triangle was sewn onto the shirts of gay men in concentration camps. In the 1970s activists reclaimed the symbol as one of liberation.
The pink triangle has been reclaimed as an empowering symbol for the LGBTQ+ community, but it is also a reminder to never forget the past and to recognize the persecution LGBTQ+ people still face around the world today. This is why you will often find it depicted on a black background, to show mourning for those who have died due to bigotry and prejudice, for those who lost their lives in the AIDS crisis, as well as those who's lives are still in danger. Occasionally you will also find it on a white background to show the hope for peace for all LGBTQ+ people in the future.
