Automatically generates LGBT banner images from various LGBT pride flags: relies on the
here packages. Here's the result for the rainbow flag:
The transgender flag:
I chose the set of flags by looking at the Wikipedia page for LGBT symbols and the Wikicommons page for Sexual identity symbols. I'm a little uncomfortable about it though insofar as a lot of them don't pertain to my own identification, so I don't feel confident in making decisions about what should be included and what shouldn't. Roughly what I tried to do was retain anything that appears to be a self-identity category of some kind (e.g., gay, lesbian, transgender, asexual, genderqueer, etc), but not include things that are something more like subcultures (e.g., leather, drag). The lines are super-blurry though. There are pride flags for bear, twink, lipstick lesbian etc that are described on the Wikipedia pages in terms that come closer to being identity categories. I tended to include those, but I admit that I don't feel sure about my choices here!
Contents of the repository:
flagsdirectory contains the SVG files for the flags
Rlogo.svgis the original R logo;
Rlogo_bw.svgis a modified version
rainbow.Ris the script that draws the banners
bannersdirectory contains the output (1000x600 pixels)
banners_smallcontains the same images (600x360 pixels)
Most of the banner images come out pretty readable: the nonbinary one is an obvious exception, where we lose half of the R logo.
