Adham Faramawy Rainbow Flags 1

Artist Adham Faramawy’s reimagined Pride Flag adorns London's West End

Updates

Art of London in collaboration with the Royal Academy of Arts, unveil 25 colourful new flags lining Piccadilly.

These flags are artist Adham Faramawy's reimagining of the iconic LGBTQ+ pride flags.

Named ‘Rainbow Flags,’ this artwork celebrates the diversity of LGBTQ+ identities with a mesmerising blend of colours that merge and flow together. Adham Faramawy, an esteemed graduate of the prestigious RA Schools, designed these flags based on an original piece created during his time as a student there. His use of vivid colours and gentle contours reimagines the traditional rainbow flag to foster inclusivity and celebrate the LGBTQ+ community.

Unveiled just in time for Pride and on display until 1st September, this striking installation highlights the exceptional creativity emerging from the RA Schools. As thousands of people march down Piccadilly for Pride on 29th June, these 25 flags will grace the skyline, encouraging everyone to embrace unity and celebrate diversity.

Founded in 1769, the RA Schools is the UK's oldest fine art school, known for its free and independent programs, admitting artists purely on merit. Recent renovations have provided state-of-the-art, fully accessible facilities for the next generation of artists, while preserving the rich heritage of the historic buildings.
