“Someone, who can be transgender or cisgender, who generally considers themself a woman who is attracted to other women.”
– The Transgender Language Primer. See the full lesbian definition.
This flag has 7 even horizontal stripes which are colored (top to bottom) dark purple (#181938), violet (#3B2B6A), medium purple (#694293), pink (#EFC6FF), light red (#D56F84), red (#8C0025), and dark red (#4B0716).
“I felt like pinks were a little too reminiscent of the
lipstic flag, so I went with a redder color, and opted for violets and indigo
since violets are so commonly associated with lesbianism. I also worked out
some rough meanings. But yea a pretty lesbian flag is what we deserve.”
