Background
After the flood that subdued the earth (see scripture below), God promised Noah that he would never again destroy the earth by flooding it. God made a covenant with Noah and it is signified by a rainbow after rainfall as a memorial (reminder) of the covenant:


Genesis 9:13–17
'I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.'
