What Is The Two-Spirit 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 Two-Spirit Pride Flag is one such flag, which you may have seen flying at any number of pride celebrations including places like Las Vegas, Phoenix, and New York City!

Two-Spirit, also known as Two-Spirited, is an Indigenous North American identity that encompasses sexuality, gender, and/or spirituality. Two-Spirit is a broad concept that embraces homosexual/homoromantic affinity as well as a wide range of gender diversity, including those who are gay, lesbian, bi, trans, genderqueer, GNC, or have multiple gender identities in Western society.

There is no one agreed-upon two-spirit flag; however, tumbler user 2Sanon developed the most commonly seen two-spirit flag. They submitted it to ask-pride-color-schemes on December 17th, 2016. The circle denotes oneness in one, while the two feathers signify woman and man. It’s usually put over the LGBT rainbow flag, but it may also be draped over a transgender or nonbinary flag.
