The rainbow references the symbol of the LGBTQIA+ community, and the 346-piece set is intended to construct a display conveniently sized to fit on shelves or window sills as pictured above.

This particular product is primarily aimed at the adult market, one that LEGO has been successfully winning over for some years now. (See Building Mindfulness: Lego’s Marketing Play to Adults)

Set designer Matthew Ashton, Vice President, Design said the ensign was meant to be an inclusive celebration of individuality: “Everyone is unique, and with a little more love, acceptance and understanding in the world, we can all feel more free to be our true AWESOME selves! This model shows that we care, and that we truly believe ‘Everyone is awesome’!”
