LGBT+ Flags

Intersex Inclusive Pride Flag

This is the most modern iteration of the LGBT+ flag. It was designed and adopted in 2021.

It combines both the 6 coloured rainbow flag most commonly associated with the LGBT+ community, the black and brown stripes to represent people from Black and Asian backgrounds within the community, the white, pink, and blue to represent the Trans community, and the purple circle within yellow to represent the intersex community.

Lesbian Flag

This flag features different shades of pink and sometimes comes with a red kiss.

Commissioned in 2010 each stripe has a different meaning: Gender nonconformity



Unique relationships to womanhood

Serenity and peace

Love and sex


Some consider this flag too feminine and exclusive so an alternate purple one can sometimes be used

Rainbow Flag

This is the most well-known LGBT+ flag and used in many nations.

First commissioned in 1978 it has changed from the initial designed to become 6 colours each with a different meaning.

Red: Life
Orange: Healing
Yellow: Sunlight
Green: Nature
Blue: Harmony
Violet: Spirit 

Now most of the community see the colours to represent the vast diversity of LGBT+ people.

Bisexual Flag

Created in 1998 the idea being to represent attraction to the opposite gender, the same gender, and blending in the middle to represent attraction to 2 or more genders.

Due to evolving conversations around gender, identity, and preference not everyone chooses this flag to represent them.

Trans Flag

First created in 1999 the blue and pink are designed to represent the traditional colours of baby boys and girls, with white in the middle to represent intersex people, people transitioning, and those who don't identify with any gender. 

Intersex Flag

This version came about in 2013. The colours yellow and purple were chosen as neither are associated with gender constructs, and so are wholly unique.

The circle is to show the wholeness and uniqueness of Intersex people, a reminder they are perfect just the way they are.

Progress Flag

The progress flag came about in 2018 and was a redesign / combination of both the Philadelphia and Seattle designs of the Pride flag.

The colours represent those found in the Rainbow flag as well as Black and Brown for people of colour within the community, and the white, pink, and blue colours from the Trans flag.

Non-Binary Flag

Created in 2014 the colours represent:

Yellow: Individuality and someone who identifies outside of gender binary.
White: Also seen as a mix of all colours represents multi-gendered people.
Purple: People who are a blend of genders
Black: Also seen as the absence of colour represents people with no gender (Agender)

Asexual Flag

Created in 2010 by the Asexual Visibility and Education Network it is designed to represent those in the community who struggle with, or have no, sexual attraction to others.

Black: Asexuality
Grey: Demisexuality (Those who only develop attraction after forming a deep emotional bond)
White: Allies
Purple: The community as a whole

Pansexual Flag

Another to be created in 2010 this flag is designed for those who don't wholly connect with the idea of Bi-sexuality due to its limiting nature to two gender identities.

Pink: Attraction to Women
Blue: Attraction to Men
Yellow: Attraction to all other genders and those who don't identify with any gender/ gender fluid people

Straight Ally Flag

This flag started being used in the early 2000s. The black and white stripes are derived from the heterosexual flag but adds the rainbow colours in the form of an A for Ally.

This flag came about as an evolution of the original Heterosexual flag which had unfortunately started to be used in anti-LGBT+ protests.
