Gender Wiki

Pride flags are flags that are used for representing genders and orientations. Pride flags have been made for other purposes, but this page will cover gender- and orientation-related flags.

Pride flags are often carried out at pride parades and other visibility events to show identification or support for a particular gender identity or orientation. They may also be combined with symbols.

Transgender Flag

Transgender Pride flag

The transgender pride flag by Monica Helms

The current transgender flag was designed by trans woman Monica Helms in 1999. It has five stripes in total, from top to bottom: blue, pink, white, pink, blue. It first appeared a pride parade in Phoenix, Arizona in 2000. [1][2]

  • The blue stripes represent men as blue is a stereotypically masculine color.
  • The pink stripes represent women as pink is a stereotypically feminine color.
  • The white represents those who don't neatly fit into the gender binary and intersex people, as well as representing the crossover between genders that many trans people feel they undergo in transitioning.

Nonbinary Flag

Non-binary enby pride flag

The nonbinary pride flag designed by Kye Rowan.

The nonbinary pride flag was created in February 2014 by 17-year-old Kye Rowan on Tumblr, when a call was put out by several members of their community for a flag that could represent nonbinary folk who did not feel that the genderqueer flag represented them. This flag was intended to go alongside Marilyn Roxie's genderqueer flag rather than replace it. [3][4][5]

The flag consists of four stripes coloured (from top to bottom) yellow, white, purple and black.

  • Yellow represents those whose gender exists outside of and without reference to the binary as yellow is often used to distinguish something as its own.
  • White represents those who have many or all genders as white is the photological presence of color and/or light.
  • The purple stripe represents those who feel their gender is between or a mix of female and male as purple is the mix of traditional boy and girl colors. The purple also could be seen as representing the fluidity and uniqueness of nonbinary people.
  • The final black stripe represents those who feel they are without gender, as black is the photological absence of color and/or light.

Genderqueer Flag


Genderqueer flag designed by Marilyn Roxie.

The final version of Marilyn Roxie's genderqueer pride flag was created in June 2011. It underwent two other versions with the same color scheme in 2010. It originally attempted to represent all non-binary and genderqueer people, however, as the genderqueer community grew the flag became synonymous with "genderqueer", thus leaving many non-binary people feeling forced under a label they didn't want. Rather than try to replace Roxie's flag, another flag has come to sit along side it to represent those who wanted it. [6]

The genderqueer flag has three stripes coloured (from top to bottom) purple, white and green.

  • Chartreuse green represents those outside the gender binary as it is the inverse color to purple, the combination of pink and blue.
  • The white stripe represents agenderness and gender neutrality.
  • The third stripe is purple, to represent those whose genders are of, between, or a mix of female and male.

Androgyne flag

Androgyne 3 by pride flags-d97f3hq

The androgyne flag diplays three colors that are arranged vertically. The pink represents the feminine side, the blue masculine and purple the balance between them thus the non-binaryness.

Gender Nonconforming/Gender Creative flag

Gender Creative Flag

Designed by Leslie Ellen (sorcerykid)

Sorcerykid: "The banner is constructed of two exterior lavender fields in opposition, a composite of the pink and blue fields found in the transgender pride flag and an interior white field one-fifth the proportion to the remainder. Lavender symbolizes the blurring of the conventional ideals associated with masculinity and femininity whereas white represents freedom of gender expression."

Intersex Flag

Intersex flag

Intersex flag designed by Organisation Intersex International Australia.

An intersex flag was created in 2009 by Natalie Phox. It consists of five horizontal stripes coloured (from top to bottom) lavender, white, a double-width stripe with a gradient from blue to pink, white and lavender. The gradient represents the range of sexes between male and female, and the lavender represents a combination of male and female traits.


Intersex flag by Natalie Phox

An alternate intersex flag was created in 2013 by Organisation Intersex International Australia. It features a yellow background with a purple ring in the centre. It was designed to be unique and non-derivative, and to avoid colours associated with traditional gender roles such as blue and pink. The unbroken circle symbolises wholeness and completeness, and the right for intersex people to be who and how they want to be. [7]


Trans-Intersex Flag-0

Trans-Intersex by Jesse Bananasaurus/Demi-Dude

"The transgender pride flag has been inserted within the circle of the intersex pride flag to signify the inner identities of intersex people who do not identify with the gender their doctors and/or parents assigned them at birth." - Jesse Bananasaurus/Demi-Dude created in July, 2017.

Agender Flag large

Agender flag by Rumpus Parable

Created 2014 by Rumpus Parable. Simple and clean lined agender flag design.

  • Black is to indicate a distinct identity in those without gender. The color black for agender persons is chosen for its correspondence with black being the total absence of color in the light spectrum.
  • White acknowledges the historical use as an all-inclusive color for anyone who is non-binary in sex and/or gender and the identity color of black to be placed against to indicate its specific grouping within that traditionally generalized non-binary color.

The two colors have been used alone to intentionally be agender specific without the addition of others usually seen to give reference to gendered identities of any type and aesthetically to create a stark, bold, and simple contrast for the emphasis in the difference and separation from genders expressed and included in other pride flags.

The citrus agender flag variant by Mars (2021) has five colors. The colors and meanings are:

  • Green (leaves - working for agender liberation)
  • Lime (limes - agender friendship, love, and community)
  • Yellow (lemons - agender joy and celebration)
  • Orange (oranges - agender artwork and creativity)
  • Red (blood oranges - agender diversity and individual expression).

Pangender Flag


Pangender pride flag proposed by pangendering.

Created in January 2015 by Pangendering. It's based on the agender flag. It consists of seven stripes colored (top to bottom) yellow, light red, violet, white, violet, light red, yellow.  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).

  • Yellow (#fff798) represents all the genders that are not related to female and male.
  • Light red (#ffddcd) represents the transition to the genders which are related to female and male.
  • Light violet (#ffebfb) represents the combination of female and male.
  • White represents the blend of all these genders.

Gender Bender Flag


Gender Bender flag

Gender bender is an informal term used to refer to a person who actively transgresses, or "bends," expected gender roles and presentation.

  • Blue for masculinity.
  • Pink for femininity.
  • Purple for the combination of femininity and masculinity.

Ingender Flag


Just white. Might be changed to add globe.

As Ingenderism is about the unity of humanity, rather than separating people by their differences, a white flag is used, as all colors are merely part of white.

Bigender Flag

  • White represents nonbinary identities
  • Purple represents androgynous identities

Other flags

Alternate Pocket Gender flag

Alternate Pocket Gender flag

Last one

A flag for pocket gender created by our own Alex Stowe. In their own words "... the pink and blue represent masculinity and feminity. They are shaped in (semi) triangles to represent the varying amounts of masculinity and feminity. The purple represents a mix of both (feminity and masculinity and/or genderlessness), the black represents a lack of either or a mix including some form of genderlessness, and the orange represents Maverique, the separation of any gender including genderlessness."
