It turned out I had a lot of feelings about what this should look like. So you’re getting a design. With history! And symbolism!
If you want a specific name to distinguish it from its predecessors, call it the lesbian community flag. Comes with labrys and non-labrys variations (thanks to Pride-Flags for the graphic). If you like it, feel free to use any of them without restriction!
- Shoutout to the gradient design of the lipstick lesbian flag; represents femme lesbians
- There’s two of them to represent pride in f/f couples
- And to represent the harmony between “liking women” and “being a woman”
- And, because the lighter shade echoes the pink from the trans pride flag, to represent that this includes both cis lesbians & trans lesbians
Pale yellow stripe:
- Echoes the nonbinary and intersex flags, to represent that this includes nonbinary & intersex lesbians
- Echoes the middle stripe in the pan flag, to represent our attraction to nonbinary lesbians
- It’s a sandy, beachy shade of yellow, because Lesbos is an island
- Shoutout to the color of the lesbian labrys flag
- Honoring the reclamation of the “lavender menace” symbolism
- Represents the importance of lesbians being feminists, and lesbian issues being part of feminism
- This one’s for the butch lesbians
- It’s at the base of the flag because it’s buff enough to hold all the other stripes up
- I experimented with plain #000 as another shoutout to the labrys flag, but a brighter stripe worked better with all the other colors, which represents how when all different kinds of lesbians band together we look awesome
