What is the Bisexual Flag? A Comprehensive Guide
Understanding the different elements of the LGBTQ+ flags goes a long way in appreciating the beauty of the diversity they represent. The Bisexual Flag, designed by Michael Page in 1998, is one such emblem that stands for the bisexual community, offering a symbol as vibrant as the gay pride rainbow flag. Each color on the Bisexual Flag carries a significant meaning that reflects the diversity within the bisexual community.
Bisexual Flag Colors and Their Meanings
The Bisexual Flag is a medley of three colors - pink, purple, and blue. Each of these colors carries a significant meaning:
- Pink: Symbolizes same-gender attraction.
- Blue: Represents attraction to the opposite gender, or in the case of non-binary individuals, attraction to a different gender.
- Purple (the blend of pink and blue): Stands for attraction to two or more genders.
A Brief History of the Bisexual Flag
Michael Page designed the Bisexual Flag in 1998 with a simple yet powerful intention - to give the bisexual community its unique symbol and to increase its visibility. Bi-erasure, the tendency to ignore or negate bisexuality, was a significant problem back then, and sadly, it continues to be so even today. The Bisexual Flag is a bold, visual assertion of the community's presence and validity.
