The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) flag or logo can be seen at http://www.hrcusa.org/ The flag is more often seen as a sticker. The two lines are an "=" sign, suggesting equality of the races. I believe it goes back to CORE, the Congress of Racial Equality, back in the 60s. The ones I have seen, yellow lines on a blue field, have all been horizontal, in accordance with the equality sign.
