The rainbow is the symbol of a lot of people, not just the LGBTQI +and not just those who follow the Old Testament.

It's the Chakras in Hinduism, and also the Bow of Indra. It's the Amuesha (Peruvian) method of transporting diseases. And to the Indigenous Australians, it's the Rainbow Serpent, in charge of water and the passage of time. So it's been adopted by many cultures, as well as the Judaeo-Christian ones.

To the LGBTQI+ community, it's a symbol of inclusion, and a dream of a world where there's no discrimination and violence based on your gender, preferences or sex. To those who follow the Judeao-Christian God, it's a sign that he won't destroy the earth again.

So if you want to hold onto your definition of it, there's no reason not to. If you want to make a distinction, just go with a rainbow with more than 6 colours. Great-Uncle Isaac believed in 7, so perhaps go with that?
