Flags

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!

Agender

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.

Lipstick Lesbian

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!
