Pink/Yellow Triangle

The Pink/Yellow triangle overlap was used in Nazi Germany in order to designate people who were both gay and Jewish.

The yellow triangle was used to designate Jewish people, and the pink triangle to designate homosexuals. As a result, this has become an important symbol in the history of Gay Pride, particularly in the Jewish community.
