How to Find Your LGBTQ Flag: A Quiz and a Resource

Asexual individuals, who lack sexual attraction to all genders, got their own flag in 2010, following an Asexual Visibility and Education Network contest that challenged participants to create a flag for those who identify as asexual. Like the other LGBTQ flags, this one has a variety of colored stripes, each with its own meaning:

The 6-Color Pride Flag is one of the most well-known and used LGBT flags throughout history. This flag includes the colors red, orange, yellow, green, indigo, and violet on it.Hot pink wasnt included in the fabrication of these flags, because the fabric was hard to find. As the demand for the flag started to rise after the assassination of gay San Francisco City Supervisor Harvey Milk on November 27, 1978.In 1979, the flag was modified again. Aiming to decorate the streetlamps along the parade route with hundreds of rainbow banners, Gilbert Baker decided to split the motif in two with an even number of stripes flanking each lamp pole. To achieve this effect, he dropped the turquoise stripe that had been used in the seven-stripe flag. The result was the six-stripe version of the flag that would become the standard for future production.

The Abrosexual Pride Flag has existed since 2015. The flag was created by Mod Chad of pride-flags-for-us after another anonymous person requested it. It is unknown why this person chose these colors specifically. Abrosexual refers to an individual whose sexuality is changing or fluid. For example, someone could be gay one day, then be asexual the next, then polysexual the next. While it is possible - and even common - for a person's sexual identity to shift or change in some way throughout their life, an abrosexual person's sexuality may change more frequently, over the course of hours, days, months, or years. Because of their inconsistent attraction, some abrosexual people may not feel compelled to seek out a relationship or may prefer a wavership.The timing of the fluctuations is different for every person; for some the fluctuations may be erratic and for others they may be regular. The sexualities that a person fluctuates between also varies. Some abrosexual people may be fluid between all sexualities, while others may only be fluid between a few.

The full suite of LGBTQ flags is a beautiful sight. Ever since the first rainbow-hued LGBTQ flag was created in 1978, pride flags have been a colorful symbol of queer identity. Much like the communities they represent, these flags are in a constant state of evolution, expanding to better and more inclusively encompass every queer identity under the rainbow. And what a rainbow it is!

As a refresher, non-binary refers to people who use they/them pronouns. The nonbinary pride flag was created by Kye Rowan in 2014. The original intent was for this flag to be used alongside the genderqueer pride flag, as it expands on the inclusive nature. Specifically, the yellow stripe in this design represents people whose gender does not exist in the binary, the white stripe stands for people who identify with multiple or all genders, the purple stripe signifies those who use a mix of female and male genders, and the black stripe is for those who do not adopt a gender. This is one of the more recent pride flags, a visual celebration representing how the gender binary is continuing to be explored and discussed.

Although there are a few aromantic flags in use, this version, created and posted by Tumblr user cameronwhimsy in 2014, is considered the main one. In a follow-up post, the creator clarified their intention behind each of the colors:

Like with the other different pride flags, there have been a number of variations for the polyamorous flag design. First off: Polyamory is defined as a person who has multiple romantic or sexual relationships with multiple consenting people. The original design was introduced in 1995, designed by Jim Evans. The Greek pi symbol sits in the middle, surrounded by various colored bars. The blue bar stands for honesty and openness, the red bar represents love, and the black bar signifies solidarity. There is no definitive meaning behind the pi symbol, but a common reason is that it stands for infinite love among various partners. Some of the flag variations have removed the pi symbol, replacing it with an infinity heart symbol.

In fact, there are now over 50 flags recognized among the LGBTQ+ community, each used to symbolize different gender identities and sexual orientations within. While most queer individuals would also identify with the all-encompassing rainbow flag, many want to have their own individual flag.

Imagine the rainbow flag is the US flag, and many of these other flags are like individual states underneath. In a community as large and beautifully diverse as ours, it is natural that smaller tribes will want to carve out some recognition for themselves; thus, the different LGBTQ Flags we have today.

The abrosexual flag was created by Mod Chad of pride flags-for-us after an anonymous Tumblr user requested it. It is also thought that the flag and the term originated on DeviantArt in 2013 and later gained recognition on Tumblr.

The next aromantic pride flag had five stripes. The colors were black, grey, yellow, light green, and dark green. Like many LGBTQ flags, this one was first created on Tumblr (in 2014 by user Cameron). The third design is the most recent one and is currently the most widely used and accepted version of the aromantic pride flag. Cameron also designed this flag on November 16th, 2014.

Sadly, like many LGBTQ+ flags invented in the internet era, it is unknown when or by who the demisexual flag was created, but we can assume it was created after the asexual pride flag (created in 2010) as it uses the same colors.

There are two drag pride flags; however, many drag entertainers are unaware of the earliest pride flag, which was created by artist Sean Campbell in 1999 and was called the Feather Pride Flag. It has a phoenix in its center which symbolizes rebirth and fires of passion with which the drag community exercises to raise awareness and funds in their communities.

However, it is important to note that not all members of the intersex community have embraced this intersex flag. Some of them will not identify with what it represents. As a result, there have been many changes to the intersex flag over the years, with many other flags being used concurrently. However, this is the most widely recognized.

Like many LGBTQ+ flags, the maverique pride flag was first created on Tumblr, by Vesper H. (queerascat), who also coined the term maverique a few days earlier. The following are the meanings of the colors:

Cari Rez Lobo first proposed the Pangender Pride flag in 2015 on Tumblr. The suggested pride flags for the Pangender Spectrum are based on the agender pride flag. The colors are extremely vibrant (like the brightness has been turned up) to symbolize the diversity of genders as white light, in the electromagnetic spectrum, is a combination of all colors.

The polysexual pride flag has pink, green, and blue stripes. Pink represents an attraction to women, green represents an attraction to non-binary people, and blue represents an attraction to men. The polysexual flag was created by Tumblr user Tomlin in 2012. The user created the flag after noting that polysexuals did not have a flag to represent them. He made the flag similar to pan and bi flags since all these identities are under the multisexual umbrella.

There are many questioning pride flags, but most have some form of question mark incorporated into the design. The version created by Swocks, the owner of a large LGBTQ+ Hangout community, was first used on August 18th, 2020, and is now the most frequently seen with a pastel flag with the white question mark over it represents questioning pride.

LGBT people and allies currently use rainbow flags and many rainbow-themed items and color schemes as an outward symbol of their identity or support. There are derivations of the rainbow flag that are used to focus attention on specific causes or groups within the community (e.g. transgender people, fighting the AIDS epidemic, inclusion of LGBT people of color). In addition to the rainbow, many other flags and symbols are used to communicate specific identities within the LGBT community.

Gilbert Baker, born in 1951 and raised in Parsons, Kansas, had served in the US Army between 1970 and 1972. After an honorable discharge, Baker taught himself to sew. In 1974, Baker met Harvey Milk, an influential gay leader, who later challenged Baker to devise a symbol of pride for the gay community.[10] The original gay pride flags flew at the San Francisco Gay Freedom Day Parade celebration on June 25, 1978.[11][12] Prior to that event, the Pink triangle had been used as a symbol for the LGBT community, despite representing a dark chapter in the history of homosexuality. The Nazi regime had used the pink triangle to identify and stigmatize men interned as homosexuals in the concentration camps. Rather than relying on a Nazi tool of oppression, the community sought a new inspiring symbol.

The first rainbow flags commissioned by the fledgling pride committee were produced by a team that included artist Lynn Segerblom.[22] Segerblom was then known as Faerie Argyle Rainbow; according to her, she created the original dyeing process for the flags.[23] Thirty volunteers hand-dyed and stitched the first two flags for the parade.[24] The original flag design had eight stripes, with a specific meaning assigned to each of the colors:[25][26][27]

After the assassination of gay San Francisco City Supervisor Harvey Milk on November 27, 1978,[30] demand for the rainbow flag greatly increased. In response, the Paramount Flag Company began selling a version using stock rainbow fabric with seven stripes: red, orange, yellow, green, turquoise, blue, and violet. As Baker ramped up production of his version of the flag, he too dropped the hot pink stripe because fabric in that color was not readily available. San Francisco-based Paramount Flag Co. also began selling a surplus stock of Rainbow Girls flags from its retail store on the southwest corner of Polk and Post, at which Gilbert Baker was an employee.[31]
