Why is there a 🏳️‍🌈 in our logo?

These colors are obviously a hint toward the LGBT Pride flag. So why is this?

The rainbow flag is an important symbol of the LGBTQ+ community, a community whose beliefs we value. Moreover we find the rainbow flag for Dataroots to be a floating signifier, a symbol that allows us to express our stance on the norms and values that we hold dear.

As a society we still have a ways to go in terms of accepting diversity. Changing societal views takes a long time and requires enough parts of a society to express their stance on a needed change. The rainbow colors that are structurally incorporated in our logo allow us to show very explicitly, and at the core of our identity, that we as Dataroots will always stand for diversity and respect in whatever shape, form or time.
