It is not a company, but the Berlin government (text in german):
Caption: "Pride weeks start: Berlin town hall hoist the rainbow flag"
And if I remember correctly, Travis CI, which *is* a german company
(Rigaer Straße 8, 10247 Berlin, Germany, just in my neighborhood) had a
gay pride logo last year on their web page.
As I said: this is not an anglo-german cultural conflict.
