Default Rainbow flag icon?

Is there any chance we could get a rainbow flag icon to go with the national flags?

Unfortunately such a thing may be unavailable based on the limitations of the message board software. I'm not sure snopes has any control over what message icons are available.

I just thought I'd float the idea and see what's possible.

I am not snopes (nor do I play snopes on TV), but if I recall correctly from many moons ago when a discussion came up on the board's icons, it was that they had to be of a certain size (25x25?), there was a limit as to how many there could be, and they had to be copyright free.

I don't know if there is an "official" rainbow flag, and if there is, if its subject to copyright or not.

Otherwise, we might have to come up with one of our own.

Doesn't have to be a flag. I could be a smiley with a rainbow pattern. Doesn't even need all the colors, really. Just enough to get the idea across.

Still, I get that it might not be available or possible. Just floating the idea to see if it is.

The flag itself is copyright free which makes sense since it's just a rainbow of colors. I don't know if that makes a difference or not.
