New Patch And Updated Logo
We are excited to share our updated logo and new patch logo for Out To Protect. The explosion of law enforcement Pride patches coming from agencies throughout the country inspired us to create one that reflects our work.
This design includes our original seven-point star logo in the center, which we updated by removing the California state seal and brightening the 6 colors from the original Pride flag. We are working at a national level and becoming more visible, so the center coloring of the star is intended to reflect this evolution. The use of the colors from the original 6 color version of the Pride flag created by Gilbert Baker in 1978 honors him and our history.
The border of the patch features the colors of the Pride Progress flag created in 2018 by Daniel Quasar. The colors reflect inclusion of specifically LGBTQ+ communities of color and the transgender community. Although the original Pride flag has always included all people within the LGBTQ+ community, we appreciate the symbolism of moving forward and progress as well as the more specific representation of all people this version of the Pride flag offers.
