Achillean: A term to describe men, partial men, or male-aligned people who are attracted to other men, partial men, or male-aligned people. It is not necessarily synonymous with gay because people who are bi, pan, ace, etc can also use it as long as they fit the above statement.
In ancient Rome, as in 19th-century England, green indicated gay affiliations. Victorian men would often pin a green carnation on their lapel as popularized by author Oscar Wilde, who often wore one on his lapel.

Design based on pridenpositivity's design. Simplification is a collaborative effort between me, mod Face (on ask-pride-color-schemes) and me.



All designs in this gallery are HQ and are free to use for anything pride-related! You can download the full size on the right sidebar. Do not hesitate to ask questions, submit new designs, or request combos, I'm happy to help!

what an unnecessary reply... yes that is literally what achillean means -_- (and before u blame "tumblr" or whatever keep in mind this flag is developed from the 19th century)

"this flag is developed from the 19th century"

the flag was made in 2017

the flag may have been made in 2017, but the symbol of the green carnation has been used to indicate mlm since the 1800s. the user also said developed, which means to advance or elaborate.
