What Is The Maverique Pride Flag, And What Does It Stand For?

While most of us are aware of the iconic rainbow flag, there are many more LGBTQ pride flags that symbolize the diverse sex, sexuality, attraction, and gender identities within our beautiful queer community.

Even while most LGBT people continue to identify with the LGBT rainbow flag, many also want to fly their own flag alongside it.

You can imagine like the rainbow flag is like the national flag: everybody’s underneath that. But each group, like each state, has their own individual flag. Because, you know, representation is fundamental!

The Maverique Pride Flag is one such flag, which you may have seen flying at any number of pride celebrations throughout the world, from Barcelona to Singapore to Las Vegas …or anywhere in between!

Maverique is a nonbinary or abinary gender that has a significant gendered experience but is neither male nor female. It is not a lack of gender. It is defined by autonomy and inner conviction about a notion of gender that is unusual, atypical, and exists independently of standard gender conceptions.

Maverique persons (like people of any gender) are free to use whichever pronouns they like and to present themselves in whatever way they want.

Like many LGBTQ+ flags, the maverique pride flag was first created on Tumblr, by Vesper H. (queerascat), who also coined the term maverique a few days earlier. The following are the meanings of the colors:

  • Yellow, which denotes the agender, is the primary color used, meaning it is distinct from the other basic hues, just like maverique is distinct from masculinity and femininity. Non-binary gender is frequently related to the color yellow.
  • White signifies autonomy and independence from both the gender binary and the color spectrum. White is the gender-neutral canvas on which maverique is built.
  • Orange symbolizes a fiery inner conviction as well as their unconventional and unique personality.
