Introduction

Asexuality, the lack of sexual attraction to either gender, is considered a distinctive sexual orientation.
Tomislav Todorović, 17 February 2020

About the flag

The flag representing asexuality was selected in 2010 by online voting organized by a number of asexuality-related websites. [1] The winning design, first published on 30 June 2010, [1] consists of black, grey, white and purple horizontal stripes. The meaning of the colors is as follows:
  • black: asexuality;
  • grey: grey-asexuality and demisexuality (orientations in the "grey zone" between full sexuality and asexuality);
  • white: non-asexual partners and allies;
  • purple: community. [1]
The color scheme quickly came to be associated with the orientation, much like the rainbow and several other schemes, and the flag was quickly brought into use as well, the earliest currently verified examples dating from 2011. A list of examples for its use follows:
  • Stockholm Pride 2011 [2]
  • Stockholm Pride 2012 [3]
  • Manchester Pride 2011 [4]
  • San Francisco Pride 2011 [5]
  • Helsinki Pride 2015 [6]
  • Milano Pride 2017 [7,8]
  • Toronto Pride 2017 [9]
  • WorldPride 2017, Madrid [10]
  • Taiwan Pride 2017 [11, 12]
  • London Pride 2017 [13]
  • London Pride 2018 [14,15]
  • London Pride 2019 [16]
  • Capital Pride Parade 2018, Washington, DC [17,18,19]
  • Christopher Street Day Middle Hesse 2018, Wetzlar [20,21]
  • Christopher Street Day Berlin 2018 [22,23]
  • Christopher Street Day Berlin 2019 [24]
  • Christopher Street Day Cologne 2019 [25,26]
It shall be borne on reader's mind that this is certainly not a comprehensive list, but a list of the examples which happen to be the easiest to find online.

As can be seen, the shades of grey and purple vary somewhat. That is also true for the ratio, although the most common values seem to be 3:5 and 2:3.

Gray Asexuality flag

[Gray Asexuality flag]
image by Tomislav Todorović, 8 March 2020

Gray asexuality or gray-asexuality, or gray-sexuality, or graysexuality (also spelled with "grey") is the spectrum between asexuality and full sexuality, encompassing the conditions when sexual attraction is experienced rarely and/or under specific circumstances. [1,2,3,4] The flag representing these orientations was proposed in 2013 by person who went under the name Milith Rusignuolo [4,5] and consists of five horizontal stripes in purple, gray, white, gray and purple. These colors are borrowed from the asexuality flag, with the same meaning as there. [5,6] The flag is still mostly used online, but several examples of its real-life use are also known, such as the San Francisco Pride 2017 [7] and the New York City Pride 2019. [7,8,9] The shades of gray and purple often look lighter than in the asexuality flag, both in online images and in real-life photos. The ratio may vary, but the one used in real life is usually 3:5.
