Hong Kong pride has taken the humble umbrella as this year's symbol in solidarity with the city's democratic movement.
Organizers said the sharing of the symbol was 'a beautiful coincidence' as they had ordered 500 rainbow umbrellas in early August, more than a month before Occupy Central began.
'We support civil society, and we hope it can support us in return, too,' pride spokeswoman Wei Siu-lik said.
'Mutual support is very important to Hongkongers now. We hope the rainbow umbrella will remind people to support us.'
