Description

Photograph of a flag that was made to carry in the 1993 March on Washington.

Description by donor Terry Sweeney:
"This flag was made by our friend Brent Humphries. Brent is a small business entrepreneur in Omaha, Nebraska... His then business was a screen printing venture, Union Jack Printing and was very supportive as well as generous to Omaha’s gay and lesbian community as it was called at the time. He was responsible for the printing of many tee-shirts for many organizations within the local area.

Of course, we felt the flag was a nod to the Nebraska football notoriety with a side of “fabulousness” in pink. Pat Phalen thought they were the best ever also offering a wink to his affinity for pink flamingos and the role pink played in his life as the Pink Flamingo Emperor to the Imperial Court of Nebraska, and his life in general, he thought everyone should have pink flamingos and made sure to give them as gifts as often as he could especially at court functions."

The flag measures approximately 29 inches x 27 inches and is made from a heavy plastic, water resistant type material. One side is pink and the other is red, both with white Nebraska graphics.
