considers themself a woman who is attracted to other women.”

This flag has 4 horizontal stripes which are colored (top to bottom): purple (#663399), yellow (#FFCC33), dill green (#66CC33), and pink (#FF6699).
Based on a poem by Sappho describing “her lover as wearing violets, rosebuds, dill and crocuses.” Purple is for sapphic love and violets. Yellow is for strength and crocuses. Dill green is for healing, nature, growth, and dill. Pink is for fragility and roses. It also uses web-safe colors.
In Lydia’s article she posted a variant from a reader named Maya Kern with the colors rearranged for aesthetics
