Intersex Flag

Intersex describes those born with physical sex characteristics that cannot be traditionally classified as male or female. For instance, variations may appear in a person’s chromosomes, hormones, genitals, or internal organs like testes or ovaries. According to the ISNA (Intersex Socioty of North Amarica), it is estimated that as many as 1.7% of people are born with intersex traits. For comparison that is about the same percentage of people that have naturally red hair. Intersex individuals may identify with any gender identity, including boy, girl, and/or non-binary.

Flag

The most commonly used intersex flag was created by Morgan Carpenter in 2013.

Yellow and purple were chosen for the design, as alternatives to the strongly-gendered colors of blue and pink. The purple circle in the middle symbolizes "wholeness and completeness" as well as "the right to be who and how we want to be."

Maverique

Maverique Flag

Despite this maveriques have a distinct and firm sense of gender.

Yellow = primary gender, as yellow is a primary color, meaning entirely independent from the other primary colors, like how maverique is completely separate from masculinity and femininity.

White = autonomy and independence, both from the gender binary and from the spectrum of colors. White is the blank gender slate upon which maverique is based.

Orange = a burning inner conviction, and the unorthodox and individualistic nature of maveriques.

Polysexual
Queer

Polysexual Flag

 

Polysexuality is the sexual attraction to many, but not all, genders. For example, a polysexual person could be attracted to all genders except men, or be attracted to exclusively non-binary people. Polysexuality implies that one is attracted to more than 2 genders. This can be any number of genders, up to all genders besides one.

Polysexuality should not be confused with polyamory, the capacity to be in a relationship with multiple people at once, nor should it be confused with being bisexual or pansexual. The difference between being polysexual and being pansexual is that pansexuals experience attraction to all genders, while polysexuals are attracted to certain genders, but not all. The difference between being polysexual and being bi is that bisexuals are attracted to, at minimum, two genders, usually men and women, while polysexuals are attracted to many genders.

Flag

Pink = attraction to women

Green = attraction to non-binary people,

Blue = attraction to men.

The flag was created by user Samlin on Tumblr in 2012. I made it similar to the bi and pan flags, since they're all in under the multisexual umbrella.

Queer Flag

Queer is an identity, and is often considered a movement, of people that fall outside of and/or reject of the cultural norms around sexuality and/or gender identity or expression. The Queer Movement has largely been about anti-conformity and the rejection of binaries and being pushed into boxes. It can also be used as an orientation or gender identity in and of itself.

Questioning Flag

Transgender

Transgender Flag

Transgender is a term referring to people who do not identify as the gender assigned to them at birth. Many transgender people experience dysphoria, a feeling of discomfort or self hatred stemming from a disconnect between their internal sense of gender and their outward appearance, their bodies, or how others perceive them.
