LGBTQ+ FLAGS and symbols
Original eight-stripe version designed by Gilbert Baker in 1978
In the original eight-color version, pink stood for sexuality, red for life, orange for healing, yellow for the sun, green for nature, turquoise for art, indigo for harmony, and violet for the soul
Version with hot pink removed due to fabric unavailability. (1978–1979)
Six-color version popular since 1979. Number of stripes reduced to an even number to prevent middle color from being hidden when hung vertically on lampposts, indigo changed to royal blue
First unveiled on 5 December 1998
designed by Michael Page

the grey stripe the grey-area between sexual and asexual

the purple stripe community
The pink band symbolizes women

lavender stripe on the top, as it is a mixture of blue and pink, traditional colors associated with men and women, in order to represent androgyny

dark chartreuse green, it is used to represent third gender identities and all those who identify off the traditional gender spectrum
represents the fluctuations and the flexibility of gender in gender fluid people
pink represents femininity
white represents the lack of gender, including agender, gender neutral, or neutrois
purple represents a combination of masculinity and femininity including various degrees of androgyny
black represents all other genders, third genders, and pangender
blue represents masculinity
created by Organisation Intersex International Australia in July 2013
aimed to create a symbol without gendered pink and blue colors
uses yellow and purple said to be "hermaphrodite" colors
designed by transgender woman Monica Helms in 2000
The light blue is the traditional color for baby boys, pink is for girls, and the white in the middle is for those who are transitioning, those who feel they have a neutral gender or no gender, and those who are intersex. The pattern is such that no matter which way you fly it, it will always be correct. This symbolizes us trying to find correctness in our own lives.
