Additional Information: 

The pink triangle was used in the 1930s and 1940s by the Nazi regime to identify homosexuals within concentration camps. It was one of many colored triangles used to identify members of various communities Nazi's considered undesirable. The LGBT community continues to fight for civil rights in many countries and has attempted to reclaim and embrace the pink triangle as a symbol of pride in their ongoing campaign. Where Holocaust victims were made to wear the triangle upside down, many LGBT individuals and supporters now wear the triangle facing up.
