Google used its Doodle, the signature space above its familiar search bar, on Friday to recognize San Francisco gay activist Gilbert Baker, the colorful artist and seamster who created the iconic rainbow flag.
Baker died in March, and June 2 would have been his 66th birthday. He was a vibrant character in San Francisco’s early gay rights movement of the 1970s, known for his wicked humor and at times outlandish creative streak.
The rainbow flag, Baker said, was meant to inspire joy, celebration and inclusiveness. It quickly was embraced worldwide, and now flies around the clock on the corner of Castro and Market streets in the heart of San Francisco’s gay community.
