About us

  - A parade in support of love and diversity

Us coming together to arrange Fanø Pride is an active move to stand united in supporting and creating a world where anyone is free to live and love – in peace and safety.

This first year, the parade takes place during the local ‘Late Night’ event, in Nordby on Fanø, where all the shops are open till 10:00 pm. After the parade, there will be live music in the streets, street food, and other entertainment, and we will also continue the party at Realen!

The parade is a celebration of the fantastic diversity we have now on Fanø. Our wish is to contribute with love, understanding, respect, and recognition to all individuals and thus strengthen the feeling of unity on Fanø even more.

Fanø Pride is a tribute to diversity – and it is for everyone, young and old, no matter their gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnic background, or political standpoint.

We see Fanø Pride as a proud cultural marking – and as a contribution to Fanø’s already existing diverse island community.

Fanø Pride is an organization that values listening, understanding, and inclusion.

COME AND JOIN us – We are super excited!

Sincerely, Team Fanø Pride

The rainbow flag

– The official Pride flag.

There are various flags that can be used during Pride events.

The Rainbow flag, however, is the most commonly used flag at Pride events, because it is the international symbol for Pride events. The original Pride flag consisted of 8 horizontal stripes in different colors, where turquoise and pink also were included. Today, the most commonly used flag has only six colors.

From the top down, the colors are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. Each color symbolizes something different.

Rød

symbolisere livet

Orange

symbolisere healing

Gul 

symbolisere solen

Grøn

symbolisere naturen

Blå

symbolisere kunsten

Lilla

symbolisere ånden

Red symbolizes life

Orange symbolizes healing

Yellow symbolizes the sunlight

Green symbolizes nature

Blue symbolizes art

Purple symbolizes spirit

The rainbow flag was designed in 1978 by Gilbert Baker and was first used during the San Francisco Gay and Lesbian Freedom Day Parade on June 25, 1978.

Gilbert Baker was 27 years old, when he sat and handstitched the first rainbow flag in his tiny ground level apartment in San Francisco. Fabrics in pink and turquoise were hard to come by and very expensive, so these were hand dyed for the purpose of making the first flag.

Pink

for seksualitet

Turkis

for magi

Blå

symbolisere kunsten

Lilla

symbolisere ånden

Did you know that…

Denmark, as the first country in the world, has a permanent rainbow flag waving all year round from the Rainbow Square in Copenhagen near the City Hall?

Copenhagen Pride was the organization that got permission from the municipality of Copenhagen to permanently place a flagpole and rainbow flag, as a symbol of community and diversity.
