Lesbian Labrys



Lesbian - A person who is a woman or partially a woman who feels attraction, be it romantic and/or sexual, to other women and partial women.

Labrys - The labrys, or double-bladed battle axe, was a symbol used in the ancient civilization of Minoan Crete (sometimes portrayed as having certain matriarchal tendencies). It represents lesbian and feminist strength and self-sufficiency. It has been in use since the late 1970s. Some lesbians have it tattooed on their inner wrist while others wear it as a pendant.

A note about using the triangle:…
The black one was for lesbians, Romani, and any one Nazi's deemed "asocial."
The pink triangle was also used during the holocaust. Specifically for gay men. 
The pink triangle on top of a yellow one, to make a star of David, was specifically for gay jewish people.

Oh, sorry, meant to add this -- the labrys flag background should be lavender, not dark purple! That's important, because it's a reclamation of the "lavender menace" rhetoric used against lesbian feminists since the '70s.
