Christopher Bailey Adds Pride To Burberry Brand With New LGBTQ+ Emblem.

Burberry announced today that it will be cementing its commitment to LGBTQ+ communities through a series of initiatives. The LGBTQ+ rainbow will feature prominently across the brand’s February 2018 collection.

The rainbow is a symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) pride and LGBTQ social movements. Other uses of the rainbow flag include a symbol of peace and the colors reflect the diversity of the LGBTQ community.

The introduction of a new rainbow check is the latest iteration of Burberry’s most iconic symbol.

‘My final collection here at Burberry is dedicated to – and in support of – some of the best and brightest organisations supporting LGBTQ+ youth around the world. There has never been a more important time to say that in our diversity lies our strength, and our creativity.’

Christopher Bailey, Burberry President and Chief Creative Officer
