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 Pansexual Pride Flag is one such flag, which you may have seen flying at any number of pride celebrations throughout the world, from Phuket to Tel Aviv to Oaxaca…or anywhere in between!
A pansexual is not limited in sexual choice concerning biological sex, gender, or gender identity. They will often refer to themselves as gender-blind, explaining that gender and sex do not determine their romantic or sexual attraction to others.
The pansexual pride flag was created by an online pansexual community in 2010. It represents the differences between pansexual and bisexual identities since there is common confusion between these communities.
The pansexual flag has three distinct stripes. The top one is salmon pink, the next one is canary yellow, and the bottom one is bright blue. These three colors represent the different gender groups that pansexual individuals may be attracted to and so:
- Pink represents those who identify as female.
- Blue represents tools that identify as male.
- Yellow represents individuals that identify anywhere in the gender spectrum or beyond.
