Last week there was the Stockholm Pride Festival in Stockholm, Sweden, a festival mainly for people who are homo-, bi- or transsexual (or for anyone who want to party with them). A flag used during this
occasion was like the Rainbow flag with red on top but with a white vertical stripe along the fly with the text "STOCKHOLM PRIDE" in sans serif letters of which the word "PRIDE" was in bold letters. I suppose the flag will be seen again, because this festival has become an annual event in Stockholm.

The flag of the local branch of Riksförbundet för Sexuellt Likaberättigande (RFSL) (a Swedish organisation for people of sexual
minorities) seems to have a flag inspired by the flag of the "Republic
of Jamtland" (Östersund is the biggest town in Jamtland) and the gay
flag. It can be seen at the blog of the organisation's chariman.
