Description of the flag

The LGBT flag of Colorado is derived from the state flag by repainting the blue stripes into the rainbow colors: top blue stripe is replaced with red, orange and yellow stripes and the bottom one, with green blue and violet stripes. There are currently only two photos of this flag: the first one was taken at the Colorado Springs PrideFest on 2015-07-12:
gazette.com
and the other one, in Denver, on 2016-06-13, at the candle vigil held for the victims of the Orlando Nightclub Shooting:
www.vanityfair.com.

Such a small number of available sources suggests that the flag is a rather recent creation. The shades vary a lot between the two photos, but look more realistic on the later photo (note the sky on the earlier photo - unusually dark for a summer sunny day), so it has served as the model for the image presented herein.

A photo of the flag, which was taken in Denver on 2014-10-08, can be found here: https://game-leaks.com/how-colorado-led-the-way-for-gay-transgender-candidates-to-run-for-office-and-win/. This is an earlier source than those presented so far, so it moves the flag creation time a bit further into the past.

A newer flag replaces the whole field with the rainbow colors, the yellow disc being merged into a single shape with the fly-side portion of the yellow stripe and red C having a black outline. The earliest currently known photo was taken in Denver on 2018-06-04, at a rally before the State Capitol [1]. Shortly afterwards, it was used again at Denver Pride Fest 2018 [2]. In June 2019, flag enthusiast Tom Fesing of Denver was flying the flag, together with several other LGBT-related flags, from his home during the week preceding the Denver Pride Fest 2019 [3, 4], the event at which the flag was used again [5, 6, 7].
