A pride flag typically refers to any flag that represents a segment or part of the LGBT community. Pride in this case refers to the notion of gay pride. The rainbow flag is the most widely used LGBT flag and LGBT symbol in general.[citation needed] There are derivations of the rainbow flag that are used to focus attention on specific similar-interest groups within the community (for example, leather subculture). There are also some pride flags that are not exclusively related to LGBT matters, such as the polyamory flag. The terms LGBT flags and queer flags are often used interchangeably.[1]
