The Flag for the Asexual Community was created in 2010 by the Asexual Visibility and Education Network. Asexual is the lack of sexual attraction to others, or a low interest in sexual activity, but asexuality can mean different things to different people, it is best to ask each individual what it means to them. For some people, it may mean that they rely on other types of attraction instead of or in place of sexual attraction. Asexual can be an umbrella term and each color in this flag also represents something unique. Black stands for asexuality. Gray represents demisexuality, for those who develop sexual attraction to someone only after forming a deep emotional bond with them. White stands for the allies of the community. Purple represents the entire community of asexual folks
Bisexual Pride Flag
The pink, purple, and blue flag was created by bi-rights activist Michael Page in 1998. Page created the flag so that the bisexual community could have more visibility in the culture rather than just the rainbow flag. The blue, purple, and pink flag was revealed on the first anniversary of an early website for the bisexual community called BiCafe. Page described the meaning behind his flag as, “The key to understanding the symbolism of the Bisexual Pride Flag is to know that purple pixels of colors blend noticeably into both the pink and blue, just as in the ‘real world,’ where bi people blend unnoticeably into both the gay/lesbian and straight communities.” Using the signature pink, purple, and blue color hues has grown in pop culture. For instance, there is a term known as “bisexual lighting”. This is a lighting technique in films and music videos, ranging from the blockbuster film, Black Panther, to the video for the song “Make Me Feel”. Pink: Attraction to people of the same gender Purple: Attraction to two or more genders Blue: Attraction to people of a different gender
Bear Pride Flag
This colorful flag was designed by Craig Byrnes for the International Bear Brotherhood in 1995. The brown and black flag is also known as the International Bear Brotherhood Flag. Byrnes created the flag when he was studying the bear subculture for his psychology degree. Four versions of the design were made and voted on by the members of the community. The modern design was the winner of the poll. This flag, however, has a different meaning compared to other sexuality flags since each color stripe does not represent a part of the community. Instead, the varying brown, white, and black stripes are the colours of literal fur from the bear animal, like grizzly and polar bears.
Bigender Pride Flag

The Demiboy pride flag was created in 2015 by the Tumblr user Transrants. While Transrants did not explicitly explain the colors, the demiboy community who identify with the flag have assigned meaning to them. The flag features four colors, blue represents manhood/masculinity, white represents non-binary or agender, and the shades of grey represents the grey areas and partial connections to other genders than the binary concepts of gender (male or female). A demiboy, also referred to as demiguy, demiman, demimale, or demidude, is a person who identifies with the concept of masculinity.

Demigirl folks identify only partially as a girl or woman. The demigirl gender is part of the non-binary umbrella, since it doesn’t fit within the binary (male / female) concept of gender. Demigirl folks may or may not identify as another gender on top of partially being a girl or woman. Pink represents femininity or womanhood White represents agender or non-binary identities Greys represent partial connections and grey areas

Drag Pride Flag
Although there was an earlier version of the Drag Pride Flag created by artist Sean Campbell in 1999, it was originally known as the Feather Pride Flag. 15 years later, Veranda L’Ni, a drag performer from Cleveland, Ohio, created this second iteration of the Drag Pride Flag—the one most commonly used now. The flag made its debut at the 2016 Austin International Drag Festival and features a crown and stars on three vertical stripes, each of which has a meaning: Purple: A passion for drag White: The blank slate a face and body become when creating drag characters Blue: Self-expression and loyalty Crown: Leadership within the community Stars: The many forms of drag
Drag Feather Pride Flag
The Drag Feather pride flag is an earlier, somewhat obscure version of the Drag pride flag. It was created in 1999 by Sean Campbell and was then called the Feather pride flag. It has a phoenix in its center, which symbolizes the drag community's rebirth and the fire of passion they use to raise awareness and funds for different causes. The phrase "to drag" refers to a performance of masculinity, femininity, or other forms of gender expression – it is to dress up or exhibit yourself in a way that differs from your everyday expressions. For example, a drag queen is someone (usually male) who performs femininity, while a drag king is someone (usually female) who performs masculinity.
Gender Questioning Pride Flag
The pink, green, grey, yellow, and blue flag was created in 2017 by an artist named Roswell to represent the questioning community. This gender questioning flag utilizes colors from gender flags to symbolize different levels of the gender binary and non-binary.
The genderfluid flag was created in 2012 by JJ Poole and features five stripes. In its array of colors, pink and blue represent femininity and masculinity, while purple is inclusive of both masculinity and femininity. Meanwhile, the black stripe stands for those who do not associate with any gender, while the white stripe includes all genders.
Genderflux Pride Flag
There are multiple variations of the Genderflux pride flag; however, the original version is most commonly used – it is unknown who created it, and it is speculated to have been created sometime between 2014 and 2015. It has six horizontal strips and six colors where dark pink represents women, light pink represents demi girls, grey represents agender, light blue represents demi boy, dark blue represents men, and yellow represents non-binary genders. Genderflux is a catch-all phrase for gender identities where an individual's gender or sense of the intensity of their gender changes over time.
Graysexual Pride Flag
Milith Rusignuolo created the first version of the Graysexual pride flag in 2013. It features two lines of purple on the top and bottom of the flag, two grey lines further in, with a white center line. The colors are supposed to represent someone starting with no sexual attraction (purple - asexuality), then going through an episode of attraction (grey to white), with white indicating allosexuality from the asexual flag, and then returning to asexuality once again. Graysexual is used to describe a person who identifies themselves asexual but does not fall into one of the primary kinds of asexuality.
Gender Queer Pride Flag
The Gender Queer pride flag was created by the advocate and genderqueer writer Marilyn Roxie in 2011. The flag has three horizontal stripes: lavender, white, and dark chartreuse green. The lavender, a mix of pink and blue which traditionally represents women and men, expresses queer identities and androgyny. White represents gender-neutral and agender identities. Chartreuse represents identities that aren't in the gender binary and the third gender. A genderqueer does not subscribe to conventional gender distinctions but identifies with neither, both, or a combination of male and female. Gender queer is similar to non-binary but has a slightly different meaning. It is sometimes used as an umbrella term to cover any identity that isn't cisgender.
Gender Questioning Flag
In 2017, an artist named Roswell made a version of the questioning flag with the colors pink, blue, green, yellow, and gray. These colours were lifted from other pride flags and represent different levels of gender identity: Pink and blue: These hues at the extreme opposite ends of the flag symbolize traditional male (blue) and female (pink) binary genders, with their shades ranging from dark to light to represent the gender spectrum. Yellow and green: These stripes represent genders outside of the traditional male and female binary. Gray: The gray stripe in the center symbolizes that the individual is questioning where they belong – a literal gray area in the middle of all these gender and sexuality possibilities.
Gilbert Baker Pride Flag
Gilbert Pride Flag , the flag that started it all… It was created in 1977 by Gilbert Baker, an artist, activist, and openly gay military veteran. Tasked by Harvey Milk, a historic figure in the fight for LGBTQ rights, to create a flag for the queer community, Baker created a rainbow flag with eight different colors. Inspired by the classic song "Over the Rainbow" from the 1939 film The Wizard from Oz, Baker created a rainbow flag to represent LGBTQ folks. Each color in the flag also had a specific meaning. Hot Pink symbolizes sex Red equals life Orange symbolizes healing Yellow stands for sunlight Green represents nature| Turquoise equals magic & art Indigo stands for serenity Violet represents the spirit of LGBTQ people
Labrys Lesbian Pride Flag
Although it’s not as well known as some of the other LGBTQ flags on the list, the Labrys Lesbian Pride Flag has been around since 1999. A labrys is the double-headed battle-ax seen on the flag, which can be traced back to matriarchal societies like the Minoans. Before making its way onto this flag, the labrys was seen as a symbol of empowerment for cisgender women, and it was adopted by some lesbian radical feminist groups in the 1970s. The purple in the flag represents cisgender women, while the black triangle symbolizes lesbians.
The most commonly used Lesbian flag, the new lesbian flag(s), was created in 2018 by Tumblr blogger Emily Gwen. Two versions of this flag exist, one with seven stripes and the other more simplified version with five stripes. Dark orange signifies gender non-conformity, orange signifies independence, light orange signifies community, white signifies unique relationships to womanhood, pink signifies serenity and peace, dusty pink signifies love and sex, and dark rose signifies femininity.
Hijra Pride Flag
The first Hijra Pride-Flag as designed by its original author. The flag was created to represent the Hijra gender traditionally in south & south-east Asia, the symbolism being (sic) "pink nd blue are for those of us [hijras] who identify with binary genders as trans people, while the white is for those of us who are nonbinary, the red represents the divinity we were blessed with by Rama".
This flag went through a variety of iterations before the current Intersex Flag emerged. Previous versions embraced the rainbow that is often associated with queer pride, while others used colors like blue and pink, which are found on the transgender flag. In 2013, Morgan Carpenter chose the colors yellow and purple for the intersex flag. Morgan moved away from the rainbow symbolism and selected these colors because neither is associated with the social constructs of the gender binary. The circle, perfect and unbroken, represents the wholeness of intersex people. It is a reminder that intersex people are perfect the way they are or choose to be.
Philadelphia Pride Flag
The Philadelphia Pride Flag came out in response to the demand of more inclusivity across the LGBTQ+ community. The flag launches in 2017 as part of the "More Color More Pride" Campaign in Philadelphia and was designed by a small Philly-based PR agency. The addition of black and brown stripes to the traditional pride flag symbolized people of color, who historically were not always included in aspects of the mainstream gay rights movement. Lena Waithe, an American actress, wore the Philadelphia Pride Flag as a cape at the 2018 Met Gala. She is a powerful advocate for black people within the entertainment industry and this flag spiked in popularity after she elevated its visibility.
