Add Pride flags to your design with Pride Flagger for Adobe InDesign

Streamline the process of adding pride flags to your InDesign projects. Quickly insert various LGBTQ+ pride flags into your designs, promoting diversity and inclusivity. Save time, represent identities accurately, and enhance your creative work effortlessly. You can either use the location of existing rectangles/groups or insert whole pride flag-filled pages.


Pride flags get inserted in various locations, depending on what’s currently selected in your document:

  • if you have nothing selected in the document, a new page filled entirely with a pride flag gets inserted once you click one of the buttons
  • if a rectangle is selected, it gets replaced with the pride flag

When will Pride Flagger support the [XYZ] flag?

Some flags are harder to integrate than others. You can follow the progress in the GitHub repository. However, since I maintain this plugin in my spare time and free of charge, it might take a while for more complex flags to get added.

You’re always welcome to contribute flags yourself, though!

Should you use pride flags in commercial settings?

Yes, you should. Pride flags are a symbol of acceptance and inclusion, and should be used in all settings, including commercial ones.

However, you should make sure that you don’t just add pride flags to your documents, but also make sure that you are actively supporting the LGBTQIA+ community. Otherwise, it might get considered “rainbow-washing” (similar to “greenwashing”), which the community doesn’t usually appreciate.

Don’t you also do a kind of rainbow washing by building this plugin and thus creating a product from it?

No. Firstly, I am part of the LGBTQIA+ community (to be more precise, of the 🏳️‍⚧️ T and the A in the acronym), and I’m not doing this for money. I’m not selling this plugin (and instead providing it as free and open-source software). I’m just building it because I think it’s fun, and because I want to use it.

Is this the first (complete) open-source UXP-based plugin for Adobe InDesign ever published?

Yes 😁.
