The lesbian community has seen several iterations of its flag over the years, each designed with the intent to inclusively represent various identities and aspects of the lesbian experience. The latest "orange-pink" flag, proposed by Emily Gwen in 2018, includes seven stripes each representing unique facets of lesbianism and womanhood.

Understanding the Lesbian Flag Colors

The modern lesbian flag comprises seven horizontal stripes in shades of pink, white, and orange. Each stripe holds a specific meaning that speaks to different elements of the lesbian experience:

  • Dark Orange: This color represents Gender non-conformity.
  • Orange: Stands for Independence.
  • Light Orange: Represents Community.
  • White: Symbolizes relationships unique to womanhood.
  • Light Pink: Signifies Peace and serenity.
  • Medium Pink: Represents Love and sex.
