Happy Pride Month. Today we’re talking all about pride flags. Here are some flags you should probably know. Here are 22 pride flags. They’ve been put through a random generator so in no particular order.
The Demisexual Flag
A demisexual person is usually a person who only experiences sexual attraction when they feel a true emotional bond with another person. The Black triangle represents asexuality. The gray line represents asexuality and demisexuality. The white line stands for sexuality and the Purple Line Community. This flag was created in the Asexual Visibility and Education Network Forum (AVEN) by user Son of Zeal.
The Two-Spirit Flag
Two-Spirit is an umbrella term used by some indigenous North Americans to describe indigenous folks who identify across and between gender diversity and sexual orientation. There are many definitions of this term, and each is nation-specific.
The two feathers represent masculine and feminine identities. The circle represents the unity of those two identities, and the rainbow lines are from the traditional pride flag, which we’ll get to later. This was created by Tumblr user, 2Sanon.

A gender-fluid person is usually a person who has a gender expression or identity that is not constant or fixed.

The Rainbow Flag
There have been many iterations, but here are five of them. Starting with the Gilbert Baker Pride flag made in 1978, which is the symbol of the LGBT community. Baker saw the rainbow as a natural flag from the skies, so we adopted eight colors for the line.
The pink line is for sex. The red line represents life. The orange line represents healing. The yellow line is for sunlight. The green line represents nature. The turquoise line is for art, and the indigo line is for harmony. And the violet line is for the spirit. And after this, there were several iterations that led us to the traditional pride flag.
The Traditional Pride Flag or Rainbow Pride Flag
As you can see, a few of the colors have been removed. Sorry, Gilbert. Pink was removed due to dye shortages. All the colors and meanings remain the same as the Gilbert Pride flag, Just indigo and pink were removed. In 2017. The more color, the more pride flag was created, also known as the Philly Pride flag.
The black and brown lines were added to highlight the racial diversity of the LGBTQ-plus community. This was created by Philadelphia-based PR agency Tierney led by Amber Hikes.
The Progress Pride Flag
In 2018, we were introduced to the traditional pride flag with the inclusion of Philly’s black and brown and the trans flag’s white, pink, and blue. More to come on the trans flag later. This flag was created by Daniel Quasar. He said, the arrow points to the right to show forward movement while being along the left edge shows that progress still needs to be made.
