A Guide to LGBTQ2+ Pride Flags

Updated Mar 30, 2022

Commonly Used Pride Flags

The commonly used pride flags are the ones that we primarily see as products and are used by many people to identify themselves. Most of them are umbrella terms that encompass smaller, less used terms (such as Transgender, Nonbinary, Asexual, and Pansexual).

The less commonly used flags are no less important than the commonly used flags, but are lesser-known and represented in products. These flags are still used by many people but not many companies make products of them as they’re not as widely known.

Progress Pride Flag

The flag encompasses the entirety of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. (Two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, plus). The inclusion of Two-spirit is for our first nation’s folk.

Gay Pride Flag

For men who love men.

Intersex Pride Flag

Intersex people include our siblings who were born not strictly male or female. This is important because there are too many cases of unnecessary “corrective” surgery and the involuntary disguise of one’s natural sex.

Transgender Pride Flag

Transgender people identify as a gender other than the one assigned to them at birth. Commonly used by people who transition from male to female or female to male, it is also used by those who identify outside the gender binary.

Gender Queer Pride Flag

This flag and the Nonbinary Pride Flag represent our two umbrella terms for gender expression outside the male and female binary.

Nonbinary Pride Flag

Someone who is Nonbinary identifies outside the gender binary of male or female. They could use this flag as an umbrella term for a more complicated identity or could identify solely with this flag.

Asexual Pride Flag

This flag is for those who do not experience sexual attraction.

Aromantic Pride Flag

This flag is for those who do not experience romantic attraction.

Bisexual Pride Flag

For those who love two genders. Typically male and female, however, it can be any combination such as male and nonbinary folk, female and agender folk, etc.

Pansexual Pride Flag

For those who are attracted to people and gender plays no role in that attraction.

Less-Commonly Used But Still Important Pride Flags

Omnisexual Pride Flag

For those who love people regardless of their gender identity, but gender still plays a role in that attraction.

Agender Pride Flag

For someone who does not identify with a gender. It’s an umbrella term for people who reject any gender.

Demigirl Pride Flag

For someone who’s partially but not fully female. They may identify as another gender in addition to being a woman.

Demiboy Pride Flag

For someone who’s partially but not fully male. They may identify as another gender in addition to being a man.

Genderfluid Pride Flag

Genderfluid people experience gender as a fluid concept that changes and shifts over undefinable periods of time. Someone who’s genderfluid might feel more feminine one day, then later feel more masculine or androgynous. Though the length of time between these states changes and fluctuates for each person.

Demiromantic Pride Flag

For those who experience romantic attraction after an extended period of knowing someone. A strong bond must be formed before one develops romantic feelings.

Demisexual Pride Flag

For those who experience sexual attraction after a strong personal bond is formed with another.

Polyamorous Pride Flag

Polyamorous people have multiple, consensual relationships in complex and varying groups called ‘polycules’. It is not cheating as all parties know and are okay with one another. The most common example is three people dating one another, but the extent of consenting parties isn’t limited.

Polysexuality Pride Flag

For people who experience attraction to multiple genders, but not all of them.
