Here’s a collection of some pride flags, for people who want to modify existing quilt patterns. Whether you’re a gay quilter, or an ally who wants to make an lgbt quilt for a gay friend or family member, flags are a great element to incorporate into your design.
Up top of course we have the original all-encompassing (but some might say, a bit generic) gay pride rainbow flag.
Note: If you’re not sure which flag is appropriate for the recipient (for example, asexual vs. agender, or genderqueer vs. gender-fluid) we highly recommend you ask them first!
The agender flag represents those who reject the concept of gender. This flag features black, gray, and white stripes mirrored top and bottom, with a light green stripe in the center.
The asexual pride flag has four horizontal stripes: black, gray, white, and purple.
Unlike most other pride flags, the bisexual pride flag features asymmetric stripes. The stripe colors and widths are, from top to bottom: 40% pink, 20% purple, then 40% blue.
The gender-fluid flag is pink, white, purple, black, and blue.
The genderqueer flag is also sometimes known as the non-binary flag. It honors androgynous, agender, and non-binary people with stripes of lavender, white, and green, respectively.
The intersex pride flag breaks with convention by having a purple circle on a yellow background.
This flag is sometimes called the “lesbian flag,” and sometimes specifically known as the “lipstick lesbian flag,” representing lesbians who prefer to present a more feminine appearance. If you’re making this for someone else, and you’re not sure if they want to be represented by the “lipstick lesbian flag,” please do ask!
The non-binary pride flag has four horizontal stripes of yellow, white, purple, and black.
The pansexual flag has three horizontal stripes: pink, yellow, and blue.
The transgender pride flag has mirrored pink and blue horizontal stripes, with a white stripe in the center.
