The Apple logo is one of the most recognizable designs in the tech world, thanks to its exemplary elegance and simplicity. It’s actually so catchy that the brand can play around with references to previous iterations that everyone will immediately notice.
That’s the case with a new logo design that has surfaced for the launch of the upcoming Apple store in the American Dream mall in New Jersey.

It is also interesting that the meaning of the rainbow colors has actually evolved since Apple’s 1977 logo, which remained in use until 1997 (see our article on the history of the Apple logo). The Pride Flag also uses rainbow colors, but in a different order, reflecting the true order of the colors in the rainbow. Gilbert Baker and Lynn Segerblom’s Pride flag was unveiled at the Gay Freedom Day Parade in San Francisco in 1978, and since then the flag has become a symbol of diversity everywhere.
