Rainbow flags in six colours often seen at events related to gender sexuality. Do you know what this flag means? I became a GS Center staff in June 2018. I had a vague feeling about what the flag was saying, but I didn’t really understand it, so I looked into its meaning.

The Rainbow Flag is a flag designed by American artist Gilbert Baker, who died in March 2017. Each colour represents diversity, with “red” meaning life, “orange” meaning healing, “yellow” meaning sun, “green” meaning nature, “blue” meaning tranquillity and harmony, and “purple” meaning spirit. The flag became a symbol of diversity throughout the world after it was used in the 1978 parade for sexual minority rights in San Francisco, the United States.

“Diversity” indicated by the rainbow flag. One of the characteristics of Waseda University is its diversity. Many students and faculty members are proud of this. Waseda University currently has more than 7000 international students from about 120 countries and regions, who are engaged in a variety of activities, including personal, club and sports activities. Graduates have diverse career paths.

The office is on the 2nd floor of Building 10 at Waseda Campus. The GS Center, which has a rainbow flag on the window of the office, is one of the most unique places to symbolize diversity. As a staff, I will support the GS Center so that it can continue to be a place where students can appreciate and embrace diversity. I am in charge of public relations for students at the Student Affairs Division. We will strive to gain the understanding of a wider range of people regarding the GS Center.
