Re: Rainbow

"Very old symbol used for thousands of years in many cultures."

It is, but the pride rainbow generally only has six colours. The reason for this is quite fun - when hung from the lampposts of San Francisco the pole would block the middle colour, so they deleted one to leave an even number so none of the colours (each representing a value or meaning) would be obscured.
