Back in February, I mentioned the work I had done with the Flag of Equal Marriage, an evolving protest flag aimed at legalizing same-sex marriage in America. The flag resembled an American flag, but contained stars only for those states which allowed homosexual couples to marry one another. Starting with just one star from 2004 (proudly brought to you by my home state of Massachusetts), the Flag of Equal Marriage gained new stars at an accelerating pace starting in 2008. Still, even in 2015, marriage equality was lacking in many states.
That all changed this past Friday, when the battle suddenly came to a victorious conclusion. The Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges made marriage equality the law of the land. And so this is what the Flag of Equal Marriage looks like now:
The Flag of Equal Marriage and the American flag are now one and the same. Long may they wave!
