We Designed the Geek Pride Day Flag

Geek Pride Day is just a couple of short hours away and we couldn’t be more excited. In fact, we were so excited to get the chance to officially celebrate our geekiness that we decided to design our very own original Geek Pride Day flag, since the holiday doesn’t currently have an official one. How else would we let our geek flag fly?

Without further ado, TA-DA: here’s our design. We know being a geek means different things to different people, so we tried to make as many geeks feel represented in our design as possible. If you want to join the celebration on Geek Pride Day, feel free to share this with the world!

What Is Geek Pride Day?

Geek Pride Day is celebrated every year on May 25 by geeks all over the world. It’s a celebration of geek culture for everybody who is geek and proud.

How Did Geek Pride Day Start?

Geek Pride Day was first celebrated in 2006 in Spain. The idea to have an official geek day came to Spanish blogger Germán Martínez, who organized celebrations throughout Spain, and it quickly grew from there.

So, why May 25? Well for several reasons:

  • Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope was released on May 25, 1977
  • May 25 is also Towel Day, which celebrates the author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams
  • In Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series by, May 25 is also known as “The Glorious Twenty-Fifth of May”

You can see now how May 25 is a fitting day to celebrate geek pride. Speaking of celebrating, here are a couple of ideas of what to do on Geek Pride Day.

3. Re-watch Your Favorite Geeky Show

From Star Trek to The IT Crowd, binge-watching your favorite show is one of the best ways to pass the day. Or, you know, you can re-watch old episodes of Game of Thrones to remember when those good old days when it actually made sense. Don’t mind me, I’m still salty about it all.

4. Play a Game

If you were to look for me most days of the week, you would find me either in front of my laptop watching TV shows, or reading a book with my cats beside me.

I enjoy keeping up-to-date with TV shows and movies that strive to provide positive and accurate representations of different aspects of society and groups of people. Moreover, I am a geek at heart when it comes to franchises like Harry Potter and Star Wars. If you think I own too many Harry Potter bits and bobs, you’re definitely right.
