Title

Genderqueer flag

Description

The genderqueer flag was first created in 2010 by Marilyn Roxie, and updated into its third and final version in 2011. The lavender top stripe represents the mixing of blue and pink, the two colours associated with masculinity and femininity respectively. The centre white stripe represents agender and gender neutral identities, and the chartreuse bottom stripe is considered the opposite colour of lavender, and represents the third gender. The three identities are intended to be seen as interrelated. According to Roxie, the flag is intended to "help create visibility for the genderqueer community and related identities."
