About the flag

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) flag or logo can be seen at The flag is more often seen as a sticker. The two lines are an "=" sign, suggesting equality of the races. I believe it goes back to CORE, the Congress of Racial Equality, back in the 60s. The ones I have seen, yellow lines on a blue field, have all been horizontal, in accordance with the equality sign.

This photo shows the flag clearly as an oblong version of the (square) logo, quite vexillologically correct. Jugding from this photo, specs vary; the image above is 5:8 = (1+1+1+1+1):(2+3+2).
