Intersex (1) by Pride-Flags Intersex (1) by Pride-Flags
Intersex: "The term intersex was adopted by science in the early 20th century and applied to human beings whose sexual anatomy, reproductive organs, and/or chromosome patterns that do not fit the typical definition of male or female. An intersex person may have the biological attributes of both sexes or lack some of the biological attributes considered necessary to be defined as one or the other sex.

Intersex is always congenital and can originate from genetic, chromosomal or hormonal variations. Environmental influences such as endocrine disruptors can also play a role in some intersex differences. The term is not applicable to situations where individuals deliberately alter their own anatomical characteristics. This may be apparent at birth or become so later in life. Intersex people, just like anyone else, may identify as any sexual orientation or gender identity.
Intersex people represent a significant percentage of the global population, from 1 in 1,500 to around 1.7%.

Being intersex is often treated as a medical disorder which should be corrected with treatments such as hormone therapy or surgery to "normalise" sex characteristics. If an intersex condition is discovered at birth or during childhood then medical procedures may be performed without the child or parent giving consent or even being aware, and many intersex people are not notified of their condition even as adults. Because of this culture, the intersex community often denotes assigned sex using the terms CAFAB and CAMAB, standing for Coercively Assigned Female/Male At Birth.

This design is sometimes used as a bigender design. However, there's already like 8 million bigender designs, so it'd probably be best to use one of those instead.

Is there a flag variation for those who are intersex but identify themselves as a male/female/neither?
