Congratulations to Apple, 40 years old on 1st April 2016
In homage to its history, Apple has hung a pirate flag at its Infinite Loop Headquarters (images via @twfarley and @mjisrawi). On April 1st, 40 years ago, Apple was founded by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne. The iconic flag, complete with rainbow Apple logo for an eye, dates back to the creation of the original Mac. The Mac team hung the flag as an act of rebellion, distinguishing their cool work, led by Jobs, from the rest of the company which was preoccupied making the Lisa.

On a typical day, Apple flies a company flag featuring the apple logo, rotating between different colors. It has used the flag to commemorate other events before, including a Pride flag to show support for the LGBT community.
