Influence

This flag was posted 37.5 hours after the Dawn Lesbian Flag, both taking inspiration from the same two flags. It’s unclear if the Dawn Lesbian Flag was an inspiration or if they were separately responding to the same discourse.

This flag was chosen by in polls by official-lesbian-flag.tumblr.com to be their “official” flag. They also showed a variant made by Tumblr user taqwomen. They included a source to that work, but the page is gone. I suspect taqwomen deleted their blog and a new person has it, or they changed focus after Tumblr’s adult content band and deleted all their posts but one new one.
