Queer Pagan Flag (CC BY-SA 4.0)

The rainbow stripes are derived from the  LGBT pride flag (the six coloured stripes) and the pentagram (the interwoven five pointed star encircled). The colours represent variety in Queer and Pagan peoples. The black of the field and the pentagram represent the strength in unity, and the circle represents the whole rather than the part. As such, the design represents the intersection of Queer and Neo-Pagan communities, and is intended as the general flag of Queer Paganism.

The flag was originally designed in 1997 by Laura Anne Seabrook. The original version was made in vinyl and included an “Athena” symbol at the centre of the pentagram, to represent the modern Galli or Gallae (transgendered followers of the Magna Mater, Cybele). The inner symbol was later dropped to make it more appropriate as a general Queer Pagan flag, and full sized flag was made and carried in the 2006 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade.

The flag design was released under a Creative Commons license on 28 July 2006 @ 10:30 pm Australian Eastern Standard Time (via Live Journal) and is presented here at Deviant Art for further confirmation of this.
