BOOM! There she is. The bisexual pride flag in all of her glory. Here are all the deets you need to know about it.
1. Yep, we have our own flag.
2. Michael Page designed the bisexual flag.
He noticed the majority of bi people felt no connection to the rainbow pride flag, and wanted to create a flag with symbols all bi people could rally around.
3. The color scheme is borrowed from another bi pride symbol.
Page used two overlapping triangles as a symbol of bisexuality and pride.
4. The colors have meaning.
The top 40 percent of the flag is magenta, the middle 20 percent is lavender, and the bottom 40 percent is royal blue. The magenta represents same-sex attraction, the blue represents heterosexual attraction, and the lavender, which is a mixture of both the magenta and blue, represents attraction to both sexes.
5. It was unveiled on December 5, 1998.
Which makes it 17 years old.
6. It’s absolutely stunning.
Let your bi flag fly.
