Here are 20 pride flags with their corresponding identity’s definitions! (Note: There are over 60 pride flags, and not every single one will fit in this article.)


An aromantic person has little to no interest or desire for a romantic relationship. Like many LGBTQ flags, the first one was first created on Tumblr in 2014.


An asexual person is someone who has little to no sexual desires or feelings towards people of any gender. The flag was created in 2010 by AVEN (Asexuality Visibility and Education Network)


A bigender person is someone whose sense of personal gender identity encompasses two genders. It translates as ‘two genders’ or ‘double gender,’ and these genders could be male and female but could also include non-binary identities. 


A bisexual person is someone who feels romantic or sexual attraction towards two or more genders. Michael Page created the bisexual flag in 1998 to help increase visibility.


A demisexual person is someone who only feels a romantic attraction to someone they have a strong emotional bond with. The flag was created around 2010.


A genderfluid person does not have a fixated gender. They can experience gender fluctuations over time. This changing time can vary between a few months or years to every few days or hours. This flag was created in 2012 by JJ Poole.


Intersex is a term to describe individuals who are born with sex characteristics that do not follow the typical notions of male or female bodies. It is estimated about 1.7% of the population have intersex traits.



While the term “non-binary” or “enby” can mean different things to different people, it is typically used to describe someone whose gender identity isn’t exclusively male or female.


A transgender person is someone whose gender does not align with what they were assigned at birth, or is not cisgender (someone whose gender identity aligns with their sex assigned at birth). This flag was created by Monica Helms in 1999.

Straight Ally:

This person is heterosexual, but they support the LGBTQ+ community by noticing them and helping stand up for them.


An androgyne person displays a combination of male and female characteristics in an ambiguous form. Androgyny may be stated concerning biological sex, gender identity, and/or gender expression. The androgyne flag includes three vertical stripes, and was created on July 24th, 2014.


A demigirl, sometimes identified as a demiwoman, is a person who identifies with aspects of femininity regardless of their gender. The demigirl flag was designed in July 2015.


A demiboy, which is similar to a demigirl, is someone who displays masculine aspects regardless of their gender. The demiboy flag was also created in 2015.


Demigender is an umbrella term including demigirl, demiboy, and a variety of other demigenders. Demigender individuals only feel a limited attraction to certain gender identities.

Gay Man:

Gay is usually used to describe men that are attracted to men, however some folks of other genders may use this term to describe same-gender attraction. This flag in particular is for gay male pride, and is one of the lesser-known flags.

LGBTQ Progress flag:

Similar to the Gilbert Baker pride flag, this flag has the inclusion of a black and brown stripe to include people of color. It also includes the transgender flag. The progress flag was created in 2018 by Daniel Quasar.

Original Gilbert Baker pride flag:

On June 25th, 1978. The first flags were flown in the San Francisco Gay Freedom Day Parade. Before this point, the pink triangle flag was flown. The original Gilbert Baker flag had eight stripes (including pink and turquoise), but today's flag has six stripes (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple). A variation on this flag is the Philadelphia pride flag, which added a black and brown stripe to be inclusive of people of color.


A pangender person is someone who embraces every gender pronoun. Although there is the exception to the lesser known gender. Not every pangender individual includes these.


A pansexual person is someone who experiences attraction to people across gender. Some pansexual individuals refer to themselves as gender-blind, meaning someone's gender orientation does not matter to them as a determinant of their attraction to that person. The flag was created in 2010.

Questioning Pride Flag:

This flag was first flown on August 18th, 2020. This flag means someone who is unsure of their gender identity or who they are attracted to. This flag is more commonly seen in pride parades. This flag contains four colors and a white question mark.

There you have it, 20 pride flags. No matter what your gender or who you love, don’t let anyone tell you differently. If you want to learn more you can visit your local library or check this site where I got this information. {}
