Arco iris

Rainbows most commonly form when sunlight hits moister in the atmosphere and refracts the light, which causes the full spectrum of light to be visible. Rainbows are also used to support diversity, gay pride and the acceptance of the full spectrum of people and preferences. It is said that leprechauns (small Irish hominoids) hide a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.
