The hand-stitched, rich cotton appliqué banner is STIK’s tribute to the original LGBTQ+ rainbow flag created by Gilbert Baker who died this week age 65. Funds raised will go to Project Indigo, who will be curating a major exhibition and archive at Hackney Museum celebrating and documenting the LGBTQ+ legacy of the area.

Hackney artist Stik says: “I am proud to present this banner to the LGBTQ+ community and hope to see its legacy live on."

Online bidding (Lot 48 | Sale 14935) runs from the 4th to the 13th April 2017 and the banner is on display at Christies King Street, London.
