Celebrating Pride Month: An Exploration of LGBTQ+ Flags
Happy Pride Month! To celebrate this important time, we at Dream Maker Pins have been exploring the rich history and symbolism behind various LGBTQ+ flags. Each of these flags carries a unique meaning and represents different identities within the LGBTQ+ community. To learn more about each flag, check out our comprehensive guides below.
LGBTQIA Rainbow Pride Flag
The Rainbow Pride Flag, created by Gilbert Baker, is one of the most recognized symbols of the LGBTQ+ community worldwide. The flag is made up of six stripes, each color holding a specific meaning. The rainbow flag is a symbol of the diversity, solidarity, and strength within the LGBTQ+ community. You can read more in our LGBTQIA Rainbow Pride Flag Guide.
Transgender Pride Flag
The Transgender Pride Flag, designed by Monica Helms, symbolizes the transgender community with its unique pattern that remains the same whichever way it's flown. The light blue, pink, and white colors embody traditional gender colors and those who are transitioning or consider themselves having a neutral or undefined gender. Learn more in our Transgender Pride Flag Guide.
Genderqueer Pride Flag
The Genderqueer Pride Flag, created by Marilyn Roxie, consists of three colors—lavender, white, and green—which represent androgyny, agender identities, and non-binary identities respectively. Discover more in our Genderqueer Flag Guide.
Polyamorous Pride Flag
The Polysexual Pride Flag is recognized by its three horizontal stripes, with pink on top representing attraction to women, blue on the bottom representing attraction to men, and green in the middle, a mix of the two, representing attraction to non-binary and gender non-conforming people. The flag was designed to distinguish polysexuality from bisexuality and pansexuality. Read more in our Polysexual Flag Guide.
Bisexual Pride Flag
Designed by Michael Page, the Bisexual Pride Flag uses pink, purple, and blue stripes to represent attraction to the same gender, both genders, and different genders respectively. Find out more in our Bisexual Flag Guide.
Nonbinary Pride Flag
The Nonbinary Pride Flag, created by Kye Rowan, employs four different colors each symbolizing different groups within and related to the nonbinary community. Delve deeper in our Nonbinary Flag Guide.
Bear Brotherhood Flag
Craig Byrnes designed the International Bear Brotherhood Flag to represent the brotherhood of Bears, using various colors to depict the fur of bear species worldwide. It was created with a strong focus on inclusion. Read more in our Bear Pride Flag Guide.
Lesbian Pride Flag
The Lesbian Pride Flag has undergone several iterations, with the latest one being the 'orange-pink' flag proposed by Emily Gwen. This flag was designed to be inclusive of all within the lesbian community. Discover more in our Lesbian Pride Flag Guide.
Pansexual Pride Flag
The Pansexual Pride Flag was created by an online pansexual community to represent the distinct identity of pansexual individuals and the gender groups they may be attracted to. Learn more in our Pansexual Pride Flag Guide.
Asexual Pride Flag
Designed by an AVEN user, the Asexual Pride Flag cleverly incorporates colors symbolizing community, allies, grey-asexuality and demisexuality, and asexuality itself. Check out our Asexual Pride Flag Guide for more details.
