The Flag

Documentary premiere

Every year in Ljubljana, during the Pride Parade, we hang our largest rainbow flag from the Ljubljana castle tower. The rainbow flag was created in 1978 by Gilbert Baker. His intention was to give the LGBTIQ+ community a positive symbolic representation, and his wish was for the flag to grow with the community. In 2017, under the slogan More colors, more pride, in addition to the basic six, two more colors were added to it. Each color symbolizes a different component of the LGBTIQ+ identity, all of which illustrate the diversity of the LGBTIQ+ community.

In the documentary, the main role is played by the eight colors that make up the rainbow flag, so the film shows eight individuals. Through their personal stories, it focuses on the attitude of LGBTIQ+ people towards the rainbow flag and its meaning for individuals and society. What does each color represent to them? What color dominates their life? In what way does one identify with the rainbow flag or with the flag as a symbol in general? After the premiere, director and screenwriter Miha Mohorič, co-screenwriter Petra Hrovatin and the performers will share their thoughts on the making of the documentary, followed by a luxurious gathering with drinks, a photo corner and other flamboyant activities.
