The PRIDE flag

Need to know:

The PRIDE flag represents love, friendship and acceptance. It is a symbol to show you are proud of who you are, a key part of what GFS is all about. Each of the colours on the flag represent a different quality, which is important to the PRIDE movement. This is a fun way to introduce girls and young women to the ideas behind PRIDE.

You can ask the girls to write their answers on a sticky note and then place their words on the colour they think it applies to.

3.

After all the girls have guessed a word for each of the colours, share the pride flag with the words. Did they guess any correctly?
