The rainbow flag, commonly the gay pride flag and sometimes the LGBT pride flag, is a symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) pride and LGBT social movements. It has been in use since the 1970s. (Other uses of rainbow flags include a symbol of peace.) The colors reflect the diversity of the LGBT community, and the flag is often used as a symbol of gay pride in LGBT rights marches. It originated in California, but is now used worldwide.
The International Bear Brotherhood Flag was designed to represent the bear subculture within the LGBT community. The colors of the flag are meant to include the colors of the furs of animal bears throughout the world, not necessarily referring to human skin and hair color tones: Dark brown, orange/rust, golden yellow, tan, white, gray, and black. The flag was designed with inclusion in mind.The gay bear culture celebrates secondary sex characteristics such as growth of body hair and facial hair, which is typically considered a “bear” trait
Designed by Marilyn Roxie and completed in 2011, the genderqueer and non-binary pride flag composes of three horizontal stripes and is designed to complement existing gender and sexuality flags.
Lavender stands as a mixture of blue and pink, traditionally associated with men and women, and so represents androgyny as well as ‘queerness’, as it has long-standing connections to non-heterosexual communities. White stands for agender, reflecting the use of white on the transgender flag for ‘gender neutral’, and dark chartreuse green stands as the inverse of lavender, representing all whose identity is outside or without connection to the gender binary.
Unlike within the wider LGBT communities worldwide which have adopted the Rainbow flag, the various transgender individuals, organizations and communities around the world have not coalesced around one single flag design. Instead there are several flags used and endorsed by the varying transgender individuates, organizations and communities. There have even been, and continue to be, alternatives to these flags suggested. The varying flags have been and continue to be used to represent transgender pride, diversity, rights and/or remembrance by transgender individuals, their organizations, their communities and their allies.
The Intersex flag was created by Organisation Intersex International Australia in July 2013 to create a flag “that is not derivative, but is yet firmly grounded in meaning”. The organisation aimed to create a symbol without gendered pink and blue colors. It describes yellow and purple as “hermaphrodite” colors.
The need for a flag was driven primarily by the desire to have a symbol that belongs to asexuals, something that they could use to identify as ace and represent asexuality with that was not tied to a specific group. Prior to its adoption, people would use things like the AVEN triangle or a half-filled heart, but those had problems which prevented their wider adoption.
The bisexual pride flag was designed by Michael Page in 1998 in order to give the bisexual community its own symbol comparable to the gay pride flag of the larger LGBT community. His aim was to increase the visibility of bisexuals, both among society as a whole and within the LGBT community. The first bisexual pride flag was unveiled on December 5, 1998.
The Leather Pride Flag is a symbol used by the leather subculture since the 1990s. It was designed by Tony DeBlase in 1989, and was quickly embraced by the gay Leather community. It has since become associated with Leather in general and also with related groups.
The pansexual pride flag was designed to increase visibility and recognition for the pansexual community, and to distinguish it from bisexuality.The pansexual pride flag has been found on various internet sites since mid-2010.
United States Marriage Equality Flag was created as a unified symbol of Pride, Democracy, Freedom and Tolerance. It uses pink stars to signify each state with marriage equality rights. It is similar to a flag created by Alice Paul during the Women’s Suffrage Movement, in which women were granted the right to vote on a state by state basis.
