I think using the names as in
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGBT_symbols#Flag_gallery is a good choice
- and thus we could use Rainbow flag.

The color of the left and right end point of the red stripe are slightly

Overall, the colors you have used are different to the HTML notation
used on the Wikipedia page - it uses color keywords. They are also
different to the colors of the six-color flag shown there.
I'm not sure if exact matches matter, but still would be curious how you
did get the colors you've used.
Adding that flag gradient:
If we add the flag gradient for the symbol it represents, we might want
to consider to add gradients for a few other flags from the gallery
linked previously, and use the names provided there.
In regard to including gradients at all:
We've had a few gradients for national flags in releases in the past
(French, German, Mexican, Romanian). They do still exist in our code
repository, but have been marked as obsolete:
In general, we have reduced the number of resources that come with GIMP
by default. Adding some resources that have a meaning beyond their mere
technical use is interesting to some people, of course.
Adding any of them has the potential to generate a lot of discussion -
I'm fine with that for any gradients resembling any of the flags linked
in the aforementioned gallery, but also a bit less frilled about some of
the discussion that might happen around some religious, political or
