The two original rainbow flags as flown at United Nations Plaza, San Francisco, Calif. (June 25, 1978): one with stripes only (L) and one with stars and stripes (R). Note the eight stripes and that the red stripe is NOT at the top (as is considered protocol for flying the flag today). Photos: James McNamara. Source.
