Pride Flags Colors explained!

Fri Jun 21, 2013, 12:28 AM


I'll try to list as many pride colors as I can think of.

Pride Stamp by xxstamps Gay Pride (Rainbow - Gay, Gay Men, Lesbians, and sometimes the entire Queer community.  The rainbow represents acceptance of all sexual orientations.)
Labrys Lesbian Pride (Purple with Labrys in inverted black triangle [different versions exist] - Lesbians, women, and feminism, and gynephilic people who identify as female. Labrys became a symbol of lesbians and feminists due to the popularity of a female empowerment publication called Labrys Magazine.  In addition, the black triangle is a symbol of lesbians due to the fact that many lesbians were forced to wear it in concentration camps during the Holocaust under the idea that they were "asocial" and did not conform to heteronormativity).
DA Stamp - Bisexuality 01 by tppgraphics Bisexual Pride (Pink, Purple, and Blue - Bisexuals and sometimes all multisexual/non-monosexual/multiple gender attracted people.)
Pansexual Pride by andshedreamed Pansexual Pride (Pink, yellow, blue - Pansexual.  The pink and blue represent the gender binary of male and female attraction while yellow represents attraction beyond the binary.  Yellow was also chosen because it represents life and happiness.  The color yellow is also rarely used in pride flags, with the exception of those that include rainbows.  The pansexual flag was based on the pink, purple, and blue bisexual flag, but the yellow stripe gives the pansexual flag its own unique identity.)
Polysexual Flag Stamp by SavvyRed Polysexual Pride (Pink, green, and blue - Polysexual. Based on bisexual colors..  Pink represents attraction to females.  Blue represents attraction to males.  Green most likely represents attraction to people with non-binary gender identities.)
Transgender and Transsexualism by andshedreamed Transgender and Transsexual Pride (Light blue stripe, pink stripe, white stripe, pink stripe, blue stripe - Transgender people and transsexuals.  Also sometimes for all genderqueer, intersex, drag, and all gender non-conforming identified people.  Although, it is important to note that genderqueer and intersex people have their own respective flags as well.  This flag was created by a trans woman named Monica Helms who says: "The stripes at the top and bottom are light blue, the traditional color for baby boys. The stripes next to them are pink, the traditional color for baby girls. The stripe in the middle is white, for those who are intersex, transitioning or consider themselves having a neutral or undefined gender. The pattern is such that no matter which way you fly it, it is always correct, signifying us finding correctness in our lives.")
 Skoliosexual Pride (Yellow, green, white, and black horizontal lines with a lavender outline of a heart in the middle - Skoliosexual/Ceterosexual. Yellow represents being non-binary or attracted to non-binary people. Green represents bigender, third gender, genderqueer, or other genders. White and black represent neutral genderlessness, agender, questioning gender identity, etc. The outline of the lavender heart represents love outside the gender norms. I created this flag, but nedle is the one who invented the word. Also, ceterosexual is another word for skoliosexual.)
Two-Spirit (Rainbow flag with a Native American symbol in the middle - Two-Spirit identified people. The rainbow represents the LGBT spectrum, and the Native American symbol represents the cultural origin of Two Spirit.)
Genderqueer Stamp by sunbirds Genderqueer Pride (Lavender, white, and dark green - Genderqueer Pride.  Lavender is a mixture of blue and pink and represents genderqueer people who identify as both male and female.  The white stripe represents genderqueer people who fall outside of the female-male binary.  Dark green represents the inverse of lavender for those who do not identify as female nor male).
Feather Pride Flag (A gold phoenix in front of red triangles and a black and white triangle pattern - Drag pride, drag queen pride, drag king pride, pride for those attracted to people in drag, and other fetishes. The phoenix is a symbol of rebirth while the red triangles represent the passion that the drag community had during the early days of the AIDS epidemic. NOTE: The Feather Pride flag has nothing to do with fetishes concerning feathers or birds.  The name comes strictly from the phoenix symbol and only represents the drag community, people attracted to people in drag, and similar sexual orientations and gender identities.)
Androgynous Pride (Gray flag with an equal sign in which the top part is blue and the bottom is pink - Androgyny. The gray part of the flag represents the gray area between genders.  The equal sign represents the equality between men and women.)
Intersex Pride by andshedreamed Bigender Pride (Lavender, white, light blue, pink, white, lavender - Bigendered people.  The outer lavender stripes represent different mixtures of female and male characteristics, and the blue and pink stripes represent the presence of male and female mixed identities, and the white stands for sexuality and transitioning. NOTE: Early I had said that it is the Intersex and Bigender flag, but it is actually only representativ of Bigenderness.  Intersexuality has sometimes been incorrectly and inappropriately attached to other flags even though there is an official Intersex flag).
Intersex Pride Flag Stamp by SavvyRed Intersex Pride (Purple circle against a yellow background - Intersexuality.  Yellow represents neutrality in gender instead of associating masculinity with blue and femininity with pink.  It is also the main color of the Hermaphrodite Flag. The circle symbolizes wholeness).
Trigender Pride (Pink stripe, blue stripe, green stripe, blue stripe, and pink stripe - Trigender and possibly Third Gender. Pink stands for femininity or female gender, blue represents masculinity or male gender, and green represents non-binary.)
Hermaphrodite Flag (Stripes in shades of orange, yellow, and green with purple Venus' hand mirror / female symbol and Mars' shield / male symbol joined together in the center - Hermaphrodite Pride. Yellow represents neutrality in gender instead of associating masculinity with blue and femininity with pink.  The flag is based on the Gay Pride flag in the sense of having a spectrum of hues that represent a fluid spectrum of gender.  Venus and Mars symbols represent the unity of female and male characteristics and genitalia, with purple symbolizing the mixture of pink and blue as feminine and male colors.  NOTE: Hermaphrodite should not be confused with intersex.  The word "intersex" is an umbrella term for people born with androgynous or ambiguous genitalia.  Hermaphrodites are a specific type of intersexuality in which a person has both sets of female and male genitalia.  Hermaphrodites are considered part of the intersex spectrum; ironically, "hermaphrodite" used to be the accepted term for all intersexuality until intersex activists intervened.)

Genderfluid Pride (Pink, white, purple, black, blue - Genderfluid. Pink represents femininity.  White represents all genders.  Purple represents masculinity and femininity.  Black represents genderlessness.  Blue stands for masculinity.)
Genderflux Pride Flag Stamp by SavvyRed Genderflux Pride (Six horizontal stripes, from top to bottom: Pink, light pink, pale yellow, grey, cyan, and blue.  The light pink and cyan stripes are thinner than the rest - Genderflux. Created by nova-pride-flags with colors chosen to cause less eyestrain and visual sensitivity.) 

Nonbinary Flag by SavvyRed Nonbinary Pride (Horizontal stripes.  From top to Bottom: yellow, white, purple, and black - Non-binary gender identity. According to Nonbinary.org it was invented by "Kye Rowan in 2014. Yellow is for gender without reference to the gender binary. White: those with many or all genders. Purple: a mix of female and male. Black: without gender.")
Pangender Pride Flag Stamp by SavvyRed Pangender Pride (Seven horizontal stripes.  From top to bottom: pale yellow, pink, light pink, white, light pink, pink, and pale yellow.  - Pangender.  created by Pangendering] and according to Nonbinary.org: "based on the agender pride flag. The colors are very bright so that they represent the multiplicity of genders [because the white light, in the electromagnetic spectrum, is a combination of all colors.]")
Polygender Pride Flag Stamp by SavvyRed Polygender Pride (Five horizontal stripes.  From top to bottom: Black, grey, pink, yellow blue - Polygender Pride.  According to its creator the-war-outside--our-door  it also represents "anyone whose identity includes more than one gender- genderfluid people, bigender people, trigender people, polygender people, some demigender people, etc."  the-war-outside--our-door explains the colors: "The pink and blue stripes are for masculinity and femininity respectively, and those who feel partially male/female. The yellow is for genders outside the binary. The black is for those who feel partially agender- I know it’s not a gender, but I’ve heard of quite a few people who would describe themself as bigender with agender as one of their genders. The grey is for those whose gender(s) change or fluctuate."
Demisexual Pride (A thick white stripe, thin purple stripe, and a thick gray stripe with a black triangle on the dominating the left side - Demisexuals.  Black stands for asexuality.  Grey represents Gray-Ace and demisexuality.  White represents sexuality.  Purple represents community.)
Autochorissexual Pride (A triangle pointing toward with horizontal stripes in the colors purple, white, grey, and black juxtaposed to two smaller triangles with horizontal stripes in the colors black, grey, white, and purple - Autochorissexuality.  [Anthony Bogaert created the term and says that it is a sub-section of asexuality.  It represents people who do not want to have sex with another person nor experience sexual attraction to others but still are aroused by observing sexual content that may include pornography, sexual fantasies, erotica, etc.]  Hunterinabrowncoat created the flag.  Purple, white, grey, and black are the colors of the asexual flag.  The black stripe represents asexuality.  The gray stripe represents grey area between sexual and asexual feelings.  The white stripe represents sexuality.  The purple stripe represents community.  The inverted triangle represents the idea that autochorissexuals have an inverted perspective on sexuality; Hunterinabrowncoat says that asexuals are not attracted to others though some asexuals engage or desire to engage in sexual activities while autochorissexuals have sexual attraction but do not want to engage in sexual activities).

Graysexual Pride (Horizontal stripes [in order of top to bottom]: purple, grey, white, grey, and purple - Greysexuality.  Created by Shikku27316 as a proposed flag.  "My original explanation was kinda dumb. The purple was asexuality, the white was allosexuality, and the grey was the region of "getting over" asexuality, and then "getting over" allosexuality to be asexual again, but that sounds pretty dumb, plus it's not the only definition of greysexual. So, the colours mean the same, but it's kinda symbolising the two coming together to make the grey area." - Shikku27316  [Of course, I don't think it was dumb. :)  If you get the chance, say something nice about it to Shikku]).
Autosexual Pride Flag by SavvyRed Autosexual Pride (two horizontal stripes, from top to bottom: light blue/cyan and grey; a red heart in the center with a black outline that ends in an arrow - Autosexuality.  The term was coined by sex researcher Bernard Apfelbaum.  The creator is aturinfortheworse , who had partially forgotten the meaning of the flag until asked by an anonymous person and says: "I think the red is for love/sexual attraction. Grey for some connection to the ace/grey-ace flag because there’s a lot of overlap. I’m really stumped by the pale blue . . . something to do with the pansexual flag, i think? No, right, okay; I’ve got it, I think.  So the main people - as far as I can tell, and by no means am I suggesting this is all - who are autosexual are either Potential Attraction to Literally Anyone (as in pansexual, self inclusive) or are attracted to only themselves and often identify as ace/grey-ace. So the blue is from the pansexual flag and the grey is from the ace flag. With this in mind, I just thought of a simpler flag: grey stripe, red stripe, blue stripe.")

Demiromantic Pride Flag by SavvyRed Demiromantic (Black triangle on the left side, three horizontal stripes, from top to bottom: white, green, and grey.  The green line is very thin - Demiromanticism. I do not entirely know who created this flag (or what the colors originally mean).  However, using an educated guess based on what these colors mean in other pride flags, I think: white might represent sexuality, green might represent the opposite of red as being associated with romanticism, black might represent asexuality, grey might represent Gray-sexuality or the Gray-sexual spectrum.  The black triangle mimics that of the demisexual flag).
Deminonbinary Flag by SavvyRed Deminonbinary Pride (Seven horizontal stripes.  From top to bottom: dark grey, grey, yellow, white, yellow, grey, dark grey. - Deminonbinary.  Created by alexander—the-great.  Grey represents semi/demi-gender, as if to be a gender version of grey ace.  Yellow represents non-binary genders.  White is a combination of all genders.)
Demifluid Flag by SavvyRed Demifluid Pride (seven horizontal stripes.  From top to bottom: dark grey, grey, rainbow spectrum, white, rainbow spectrum, grey, dark grey - Demifluid.  I'm not sure who created this flag or what its design means, but my guess would be grey and dark grey as partiality or a rejection of a black -and-white cissexist gender binary, white as gender neutrality, and the rainbow spectrum as a representative of fluidity.)

Demiflux Flag by SavvyRed Demiflux Pride (seven horizontal stripes.  From top to bottom: dark grey, grey, pink, yellow, blue, grey, dark grey. - Demiflux.  Created by aflutteringlaney. Grey represents partial gender.  Pink represents femininity.  Yellopw stands for nonbinary.  Blue stands for masculinity.)

Endogender by SavvyRed Endogender Pride (five horizontal stripes.  From top to bottom: green, dark green, light green, dark green, green. - Endogender. Created by nova-pride-flags and colors specifically designated to be more accessible for people with eye-strain and other sensory issues.  In addition to issues about eye strain, green often symbolizes non-binary gender.)
Endoboy Pride Flag by SavvyRed Endoboy Pride (five horizontal stripes.  From top to bottom: blue, grey, lavender, grey, blue. - Endoboy. "Colors represent the spectrum of identities.  The Outer Blues represents Masculinity.  The Light Lavender in the middle is a mix of Pink, Blue, and Grey to represent people who shift to partially feminine/masculinie/genderless/nonbinary feeling.")
Endogirl Pride Flag Stamp by SavvyRed Endogirl (five horizontal stripes.  From top to bottom: pink, purple, lavender, purple, pink. - Endogirl. "Colors represent the spectrum of identities.  The Outer Pinks represents Femininity.  The Light Lavender in the middle is a mix of Pink, Blue, and Grey to represent people who shift to partially feminine/masculinie/genderless/nonbinary feeling."  The lavender color stripes were not mentioned, but lavender often represents a mixture of male and female [being that it is a blue combined with pink]).
Genderplus by SavvyRed Genderplus Pride (three horizontal stripes from top to bottom: medium dark gray, grey, medium dark grey.  In addition, there is a red plus sign in the middle of the center stripe. - Genderplus, presence of genderThis flag was created by a tumblr user named allofyouguysarefuckingannoying: who could not find an existing gender identity and created this term.  The meaning of the colors are unknown, but the grey and dark grey might represent partial gender or partial genderlessness, and the red plus sign most likely represents positivity as in presence of gender).
Genderpositive Pride Flag Stamp by SavvyRed Genderpositive Pride (five horizontal stripes with a red plus sign in the middle.  From top to bottom: red, white, orange, white, and red - Genderpositivity.  "There are no meanings for individual stripe colours.  Rather the colours were chosen in order to reflect positivity, activity, and to “pop” out at the viewer and make it known they are present.  Just like one’s gender would be if they were feeling G+.")
Gendernegative Flag Stamp (original) by SavvyRed Gendernegative Pride (three horizontal stripes from top to bottom: medium dark gray, grey, medium dark grey.  In addition, there is a dark blue subtraction sign in the middle of the center stripe. - Gendernegative state.  This flag was created by a tumblr user named allofyouguysarefuckingannoying: who could not find an existing gender identity and created this term.  "There are no meanings for individual stripe colours.  Rather the colours were chosen to represent negativity, a sedentary state of being, mellowness.  The colours were chosen to be overlooked and not really acknowledge that they exist, just like your gender would be if one were feeling G-."  A variation of this flag is listed by here.)
Cavusgender Pride Flag Stamp by SavvyRed Cavusgender Pride (three horizontal stripes, from top to bottom: light pink, yellow, light blue, with one vertical blue stripe in the center.  - Cavusgender.  I do not know who coined this term, who designed this flag, or what its colors official represent.  However, my guess is that light pink represents females and feminine genders, light blue might represent males and masculine genders, blue might represent depression and sadness, and yellow might represent happiness and other emotions other than depression.) 
Demiboy Pride Flag Stamp by SavvyRed Demiboy Pride (seven horizontal stripes, from top to bottom: dark grey, grey, cyan, white, cyan, grey, dark grey - Demiboy / Demiguy / Demimasculine.  Flag was created by a tumblr user with the screen name Transrants.  According to Nonbinary.org's Demigender page, the colors mean: "Blue: male. White: agender or nonbinary gender. Grey: partial.")
Demigirl Pride Flag Stamp by SavvyRed Demigirl Pride (seven horizontal stripes, from top to bottom: dark grey, grey, light pink, white, light pink, grey, dark grey - Demigirl / Demifeminine.  Flag was created by a tumblr user with the screen name Transrants.  According to Nonbinary.org's Demigender page, the colors mean: "Pink: female. White: agender or nonbinary gender.  Grey: partial.")
Agender Pride Flag by SavvyRed Agender Pride (Black, grey, white, green, white, grey, black horizontal stripes, in that order from top to bottom - Agender.  According to The Gender Wiki's Pride Flag Page: "Both black and white represent the complete absence of gender. Grey represents being semi-genderless.  Green represents nonbinary gender, because it is the inverse of purple."  It was created by a tumblr user with the screen name transrants in 2014).
Gendervoid Pride Flag Stamp by SavvyRed Gendervoid Pride (Five horizontal lines, from top to bottom: dark blue, grey, black, grey, and dark blue - Gendervoid.  Flag originally created by: novusnova and term coined by baaphomett.  Original meaning of the colors is unknown, but it is generally assumed that the dark, bleak colors represent a void or emptiness.)

Neutrois Pride (White, green, and black horizontal lines - Neutrois [genderless, agender, neutral gender, etc]. The white stripe stands for neutral, unidentified, or questioning gender.  The green stripe represents non-binary gender.  The black stripe represents agender, asexuality, or third-gender.)
Aromantic Pride (Green, yellow, orange, and black - Aromantic. Created by cameronwhimsey.  "We designed the flag to be as inclusive as possible and we used fairly basic color symbolism. Green, (being the opposite, complimentary color to red, which usually represents romance), represents aromanticism. Yellow, like the yellow rose which represents friendship, stands for various forms of queerplatonic love. Orange, being red once removed toward yellow, represents lithromantics. And black represents romantics who choose to reject traditional romance.")
Akoiromantic Pride Flag Stamp by SavvyRed Akoiromantic Pride (Five horizontal stripes, from top to bottom: red, orange, yellow, white, and black - Akoiromantic / Lithromantic / Apromantic Pride.  Created by  thejasmineelf as a lithromantic pride flag.  "Red represents community, as it is traditionally a color of leadership, life, and sensitivity.  Orange represents lith-ness, as it does on a version of the aro flag.  Yellow represents our varied relationships, also as it does on on the mentioned aro flag. Yellow traditionally represents friendship, loyalty, and honor. White represents romanticism and sexuality. Black represents aromanticism and asexuality."

Polyamory Pride Flag - (Blue, red, and black with a gold lowercase pi from the Greek alphabet. Polyamory.  Blue represents openness and honesty between all lovers involved in each relationship.  Red represents love and passion.  Black represents all people in open and consensual relationships who have to hide their relationships due to social discrimination.  The golden pi represents the value placed on emotional attachments to others.)
Leather Pride Flag Stamp by SavvyRed Leather Pride - (Black stripe, blue stripe, black stripe, blue stripe, white stripe, blue stripe, black stripe, blue stripe, black stripe, and a red heart in the upper left corner - Leather subculture.  Black and blue stripes represent "being black and blue," which sometimes occurs after a leather encounter.  The vast majority of people in the leather subculture emphasize consent and safety during leather sexual activity.)
 BDSM Pride (Black stripe, blue stripe, black stripe, blue stripe, white stripe, blue stripe, black stripe, blue stripe, black stripe, and the Quagmyr's BDSM emblem in red and white in the middle - BDSM subculture [Bondage and Discipline, Sadomasochism, and Domination and Submission]. Based on the Leather flag combined with Quagmyr's BDSM emblem.)
Lipstick Lesbian Pride - (Stripes of different shades of red, purple, and pink with a white stripe in the middle as well as a lipstick print in the upper left corner. - Lipstick / Femme / Feminine Lesbians and other feminine female identified people who are attracted to female identified people.  The shades of red, purple, and pink represents traditionally female associated colors.)
Twink Pride Flag by SavvyRed Twink Pride - (Three horizontal stripes ... from top to bottom: pink, white, and pale yellow with conjoined male symbols - Twinks. I have not been able to find the true meaning of this flag online, so I will just make an educated guess based loosely on meanings of the same colors in other flags.  Pink might might represent effeminacy or femininity because twinks are often described as very "femme" due to their youth, minimal body hair, and slimness.  It may also represent gay men in general.  White might represent sexuality.  Pale yellow might represent youth and happiness.  The two intertwined male symbols represents gay men or all males who are attracted to other males).
Boi Pride (from right to left, top to bottom, diagonal stripes at a 45 degree angle Green stripe, black stripe, green stripe, black stripe, white stripe, black stripe, green stripe, black stripe, green stripe, and a red heart in the upper right corner - Boi or boy, with boi sometimes associated with butch lesbian or young gay man. Based on the Leather pride flag, the diagonal tilt represents the elevated status of the Sir over the submissive status of the boi or boy.  The red heart is in the right corner to symbolize where a boi/boy's heart is, and the green color represents a boyish color, possibly denoting the "green" or inexperienced young man.)
The International Bear Brotherhood Pride Flag (Brown, orange, yellow, light beige, white, grey, and black with a bear paw print in black in the upper left corner - Bears [hairy gay men]. The colors represent the various skin tones and natural hair colors as a sign of equality and unity.  In addition, hair color has a connection to the body hair of self-identified bears.)
Furry Pride (Canine) (A plain white flag with a gray dog pawprint in the middle - Furry pride specifically for dog/canine focused furries, but it can sometimes represent all furries, Anthro, Morph, and Yiffies in the community. This is one of many flags that represent the Furry community, and there doesn't seem to be a consensus on which is the "official" or widely accepted flag.  The dog pawprint represents the canine type fandom and also can also represent furries in general.  It is unknown what the colors of the flag represent.)
Furry Pride (Feline) (Light blue, pink, and light purple with a white cat pawprint in the middle - Furry pride specifically for cat/feline/kitten furries, but it can also sometimes represent all furries, Anthro, Morph, and Yiffies. The light blue represents males, pink represents females, and light purple represents transgender individuals.  The white cat paw print represents felines and also equality for furries of all genders.)
Androphilia Pride (Black, gray, white, and green - Androphilia in people of all gender identities.  The meaning of each color in the flag is unknown for certain, but it is possible to make an educated guess based on other pride flags.  Black could stand for gender neutrality or rejection of the straight-gay binary and the female-male binary.  Gray might stand for the gray area between genders, reflecting that many gender non-conforming people identify as androphilic.  White may represent equality, intersexuality, transitioning or neutral gender, or the idea that attraction to males does not equate to femininity.  Green might symbolize masculinity or attraction to males.)
Gynephilia Pride (Black, gray, white, and pink - Gynephilia in people of all gender identities.  The flag is not an official flag, just a proposed one.  It appears to be based on the Androphilia Pride Flag.  It is uncertain what each color stands for, but based on the Androphilia Pride Flag and other flags, this is my educated guess.  Black could stand for gender neutrality or rejection of the straight-gay binary and the female-male binary.  Gray might stand for the gray area between genders, reflecting that many gender non-conforming people identify as gynephilic.  White may represent equality, intersexuality, transitioning or neutral gender, or the idea that attraction to females does not necessarily a result of masculinity or femininity.  And pink is probably a tribute to attraction to all female identified people.)
Victory Over AIDS flag - (Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and black stripes. Made for AIDS victims and those who support them.   Clearly based on the Gay Pride rainbow flag.  Although it is based on the Gay Pride flag, it most likely does not only represent AIDS in the male gay community.  A person of any sexual orientation and gender identity can contract HIV or AIDS.  The extra black stripe probably represents death, but it is possible that it represents triumph over darkness).
Marriage Equality by blackdahlia Marriage Equality (A red background with a pink equals sign - For all those who support the right of people to marry whomever they choose, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.  It is usually representative of the battle for same-sex marriage in the United States but can also represent equal marital rights internationally.  The flag was originally a blue background with a yellow equals sign.  It was created by the Human Rights Campaign, an organization that fights for LGBT rights.  It became increasingly popular at the same time that the demand for equal marital rights sparked the nation, so the organization changed it to red and pink to represent love, passion, equality, and the queer community.)
Straight Ally For LGBTQ Rights by LeiAndLove Ally Pride (Inverted V-shaped Rainbow triangle against black and white stripes - Allies, who usually identify as straight and cisgender, supporting the LGBT community, though it can also include people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.  The inverted rainbow V represents the A in Activism while the black stripes represent heterosexuality.)
Metrosexual Pride (Light gray stripe, dark gray stripe, black stripe, purple stripe, black stripe, dark gray stripe, light gray stripe with a picture of a metrosexual man in the upper left corner [the man might be Mark Thaler, creator of the flag] - Metrosexual. It is unclear what each color means. The creator Mark Thaler sells memorabilia with this flag on it.)
Heterosexuality by flying-wolf-32 Heterosexual Pride (Black and white stripes - Heterosexual, usually cisgender, people.  The black and white stripes represent attraction to the opposite sex.  This is a very controversial flag because unlike the Ally Pride flag, which represents straight people and others who specifically support the LGBT community, the heterosexual flag is not necessarily an ally flag.  Some heterosexual-identified people use the flag as a homophobic reaction to LGBT pride.  Others may use the flag as an indicator of their sexual orientation, but even that motivation is very questionable to the idea of equality in the face of privilege.)
Cisgender Pride Flag Stamp by SavvyRed Cisgender Pride (Three horizontal stripes, from top to bottom: Grey, Light Grey, and Grey.  Cisgender.  I do not know who created this flag or what the colors originally meant, but my guess is that Grey might represent so-called "normalcy" [even though cisgender people are not somehow more normal than anyone else] and Light Grey might represent gender in general).

These flags are LGBT flags.  Mental illness would be a different category, and there are different colors and symbols that represent most disorders.

My suggestion to you is to research and make your own list.  I am behind on so much stuff on deviantART, and one of my groups has over 8000 members, making it hard to catch up.  Search on Google, and you'll be able to make your own list! :)

I didn't know what it was at first, but then I looked it up on Google.  After a little bit of floundering around, I found out that it is a variation of the Genderqueer flag (made by someone known as "themself").  Even though there are some flags that are considered "official" or generally accepted, there are always lots of different flags that other people propose.

Here's a link to its explanation by its creator:

genderqueerid.com/post/1306089…

I hope that helps you out!  Thanks for asking!  I think it's interesting to look at all flags even if they're not "official."  (Unfortunately, I can't post all of the variations of all pride flags because there are just too many.  I try to pick the most popular or widely accepted ones).

Hmmm...While getting ready for Pride March Tyria this next Sunday, I asked Google if there was a color on the Rainbow flag that meant 'Straight Ally' so that I could dress my Sylvari in that shade and it shows me an ugly black and white thing around a rainbow A... Why do we need to be separate?  Why can't we all be a part of the beauty of a rainbow?  *sigh*

Well, the rainbow flag is generally one of two things: Something that represents the whole LGBT community and allies OR something just for gay men and women.  I am a pansexual demigirl, and the flags for those are different from the rainbow, too.  Most identities have their own flag, and I have to say that, at first, I wasn't very happy with the pink-yellow-blue pansexual flag, but it's grown on me.

Believe me, there are tons of flags out there for various queer and genderqueer identities, and sometimes people aren't happy with their identities' chosen colors and symbols.  I made a skoliosexual flag, and most people seem to think it's ugly. (SORRY! :()


Also, it is really controversial to have any flags representing heterosexuals, including allies.  Some people feel that straight people don't need a flag because they have privilege and don't have to worry about getting kicked out of the house, being outed, or being a victim of a hate crime based on their gender identity and sexual orientation.  I do recognize that allies have privilege, but I think you guys deserve your own symbols.  I appreciate allies because there are more of you straight people out there than us queers, and we need you guys as much as anyone else.  However, there are people with different opinions and personal stories than me, and I can only speak for myself.

I've been looking up ally pride flags on deviantART, and this some of the stuff I found. 


V------ This symbol is usually an upside down pink triangle with a green circle around it on a white background, but the artist who made this changed the background to rainbow, which is really pretty.

v----- Also, there is the trans* ally flag.  I've seen other versions.

Will you add the demiflux/demifluid flag?

SavvyRed Featured By Owner May 27, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes!  I will try to add it tonight.  I'm starting to make my own stamps for these because sometimes people take their stamps down, and I also like to feel that I've contributed more.

Thanks!

P.S. I don't know if I told you this or not, but I recently came out as a demigirl.

There seems to be like three different flags for everything that isn't one of the more well-known orientations. Why is this? Which one is official?

I believe Non-binary has an 'official' flag (Yellow, white,purple, black) gender.wikia.com/wiki/Pride_Fl…
I personally like this one better ^^

thank u for the detailed explanation~ just wondering do the same flags go for romantic orientation? so like if u dont have a sexuality but just tends to have crushes on certain groups of people, do u use the same flags as sexuality?

Would Metrasexual be the same flag as metrosexual except for a metrasexual woman instead of a metrosexual man? Sorry if this sounds bad.

This is a great, comprehensive, detailed list of the identity flags. Re: the alternate (Black, white, orange, green) non-binary flag, I saw orange in another gender identity flag and it said something about inner conviction. The green in other flags (the genderqueer one and the neutrois one) is gender non-conforming and non-binary gender respectively, so maybe the green in this non-binary flag also stands for nonbinary gender. It probably doesn't have anything to do with sexual or romantic attraction, though.

Wow, there are so many sexual identity flags! Thanks for explaining all of them. ^^ Now I found one that fits me ^^

Thank you so much!  Really!  I appreciate what you have to say.  Sometimes people come to me and complain that a flag is wrong or not updated, and they tend to be very cruel and accuse me of being intolerant and ignorant.  So thank you for the support.  I will try and look into this, but it might take me a while because I am SO behind on deviantART stuff!  Thanks!

Oh yeah, no, this is a whole new world for me too, so I have no right to accuse anyone of intolerance or ignorance as long as their intentions are good. No, it's all good! Thanks for getting back to me on this! ^^

You're welcome! ^.^

I know it is hard to learn about the LGBT community.  Everything moves so fast, and there are so many different views and intersectional identities.  But if you're interested, you'll learn quickly.  And I know you will! :D
