The flag of the bisexuals serves as a worldwide symbol of recognition and to represent the pride of bisexuals.
The flag was created in 1998 by Michael Page with the intention of giving the bisexuals a symbol with recognition value. Page’s goal was to increase the visibility of bisexual people both in society and in the LGBT community. The first bisexual flag was unveiled on December 5, 1998 at the celebration of the first anniversary of the BiCafe’s.
The colors are based on the following color symbolism:
- Blue stands for heterosexuality
- Pink stands for homosexuality
- Purple, as a result of the mixture of blue and pink, stands for bisexuality. Often, however, it also includes attraction to people with a non-binary slaughter identity who do not identify with any gender.
