“This term is intentionally hard to define, much as is its sexuality counterpart queer. It can generally be understood as a gender that is neither man nor woman, possibly a mix of genders, and possibly fluid.”
– The Transgender Language Primer. See the full genderqueer definition.
This flag has 3 even horizontal stripes which are colored (top to bottom) Lavender (#B57EDC), white (#FFFFFF), and dark chartreuse green (#4A8123).
“Lavender (#b57edc): The mixture of blue and pink (traditional colors associated with men and women, present on the transgender pride flag) as lavender is meant to represent androgynes and androgyny. Also represents the “queer” in genderqueer, as lavender is a color that has long been associated with “queerness” , including gay, lesbian, and bisexual communities.
“White (#ffffff): Meant to represent agender identity, congruent with the gender neutral white on the transgender pride flag.
“Dark chartreuse green (#4A8123): The inverse of lavender; meant to represent those whose identities which are defined outside of and without reference to the binary.”
