Best Answer

In Nazi Germany homosexuals were forced to wear a an upside down pink triangle on their clothes, just as the Jews were forced to wear a Star of David. Today the people of the gay community have adopted the pink triangle as a symbol of gay pride by inverting the old Nazi triangle and turning it right-side up.

There's also the Greek Letter, Lamda, sometimes worn by lesbians.

There's also the rainbow flag.
