Pride Bar


Add an LGBTQIA+ flag design to your admin bar.

Originally added to and viewable by Australian users to support marriage equality, I have bought the rainbow flag to everyone’s Admin Bar, via this plugin.

But that’s not all, as it now supports 47 different flags…

  1. Aceflux

  9. Bigender
  10. Bisexual
  11. Ceterosexual
  12. Demiboy
  13. Demifluid
  14. Demigender
  15. Demigirl
  16. Demineutrois
  17. Deminonbinary
  18. Demixenogender
  19. Femme
  20. Fraysexual
  21. Gay Men
  22. Gender Nonconforming
  23. Genderfae
  24. Genderfluid
  25. Genderflux
  26. Genderqueer
  27. Greysexual
  28. Hijra
  29. Intersex
  30. Lesbian (5 stripe)
  31. Lesbian (7 stripe)
  32. Lipstick Lesbian
  33. Monosexual
  34. Multisexual
  35. Neutrois
  36. Non-binary
  37. Omnisexual
  38. Pangender
  39. Pansexual
  40. Polysexual
  41. Pomosexual
  42. Pride (Gilbert Baker)
  43. Pride (More Colour More Pride)
  44. Pride (Traditional)
  45. Queer
  46. Quintgender
  47. Transgender

And, thanks to code by Mika Epstein, you can modify the positioning of the flag too – allow it to flow behind your Admin Bar menu options or go around it.

How to use? Just install, activate and enjoy a new flag coloured admin bar. Different designs are available – head to Settings -> General -> Pride Bar to change the flag and positioning.

Thanks to for Michael Arestad for writing the original code and Pento for sharing it. And particularly to the LGBTQIA+ community for having such awesome symbols.

Iconography is courtesy of the very talented Janki Rathod.

Pride Bar can be found and installed via the Plugin menu within WordPress administration (Plugins -> Add New). Alternatively, it can be downloaded from and installed manually…

  1. Upload the entire pride-bar folder to your wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress administration.

Voila! It’s ready to go.


Can I submit my own theme?

Yes you can. If you take a look at the plugin folder, you’ll see a sub-folder named css – in that is the CSS for each theme. Simply modify one of those to your taste then, if you’d like to share it, send it along to me and I’ll look to include it in future releases, complete with its own unique name.

Change Log

I use semantic versioning, with the first release being 1.0.


  • Enhancement: No visible changes but I’ve split the plugin into a number of smaller files as it was getting too large and difficult to maintain


  • Enhancement: made some minor code quality improvements


  • Bug: as Snoop Dogg once said, “it’s amazing how much trouble you can get in for a mis-placed hash”. OK, he didn’t say that, but you can imagine it, right? Yeah, I put a hash symbol somewhere where it shouldn’t have been and broke the Monosexual style. Ironically, the result was that it appeared as just a single colour


  • Bug: I didn’t add Intersex last time around, despite stating I had. Now added
  • Bug: Fixed some escaping that wasn’t correct
  • Enhancement: One year later and it’s Pride month once again. Time to add more styles. 14 more, to be precise
  • Enhancement: Improved some wording


  • Enhancement: It’s Pride month, so what better time to add 18 more styles, more than doubling the number available?
  • Enhancement: Added a link to the settings page so that you can request additional styles to be added
  • Enhancement: Code efficiency improvements
  • Maintenance: Renamed the LBGT style to Pride (Traditional)


  • Enhancement: Added option to define whether the flag appears behind or inline with the admin bar menu options
  • Enhancement: Instead of just the LGBT pride flag, this now supports 14 different flags from the community
  • Enhancement: The menu bar text colour will inverse when certain flags are used, allowing them to be more readable
  • Enhancement: CSS is now added to the page header in-line, due to it being generated on-the-fly
  • Maintenance: Updated README text as well as the uninstaller (to get rid of the new, second setting upon removal)


  • Enhancement: not only follows all of the WordPress coding standards, but also the gold standard WP VIP standards too. This is one well written plugin, even if I do say so myself
  • Enhancement: improved the plugin metadata and added in donation information. Just because


  • Bug: fixed PHP errors that occurred upon first activation


  • Enhancement: CSS is now compressed
  • Enhancement: further code quality enhancements made


  • Enhancement: Code quality enhancements to bring it in line with VIP coding standards


  • Initial release
