After the U.S. Supreme Court extended same-sex marriage nationwide Friday, Facebook launched a new tool to help its users celebrate.

If you go to facebook.com/celebratepride, you will see what your Facebook profile picture looks like with a rainbow filter. Clicking the “use as profile picture” button will automatically add the feature to your existing profile photo.

While many Facebook users have uploaded rainbow flags as their profile photos to celebrate same-sex marriage rulings in the past, this is the first time Facebook rolled out a tool of its own.

Other tech companies are celebrating the ruling as well. Google added colorful artwork that users will see if they search for phrases like “gay marriage” and “same-sex marriage.” Google and YouTube also published an emotional video called #ProudToLove to mark the historic occasion.
