The LGBT flag of Colorado is derived from the state flag by repainting the blue stripes into the rainbow colors: top blue stripe is replaced with red, orange and yellow stripes and the bottom one, with green blue and violet stripes. There are currently only two photos of this flag: the first one was taken at the Colorado Springs PrideFest on 2015-07-12:
and the other one, in Denver, on 2016-06-13, at the candle vigil held for the victims of the Orlando Nightclub Shooting:
Such a small number of available sources suggests that the flag is a rather recent creation. The shades vary a lot between the two photos, but look more realistic on the later photo (note the sky on the earlier photo - unusually dark for a summer sunny day), so it has served as the model for the image presented herein.

A photo of the flag, which was taken in Denver on 2014-10-08, can be found
This is an earlier source than those presented so far, so it moves the flag
creation time a bit further into the past.
