Description

The Intersex flag was created by Organisation Intersex International Australia in July 2013 to create a flag "that is not derivative, but is yet firmly grounded in meaning." The organisation aimed to create a symbol without gendered pink and blue colors. It describes yellow and purple as "hermaphrodite" colors. The organisation describes it as freely available "for use by any intersex person or organisation who wishes to use it, in a human rights affirming community context."

An interesting design making use of the plain ring symbol "⚪", akin to the well known Venus/female symbol "♀" and the Mars/male symbol "♂". There is a whole wide gamut of intersectioning concepts that are relevant here, concerning sex, gender, sexual orientation, and gender expression, and psychology, physiology, and sociology of sex and gender. In that regard, the plain ring symbol "⚪" can also some times mean asexuality and/or genderlessness, which is not the same as what this flag was created to represent.
António Martins-Tuválkin, 15 March 2017

The earliest currently known example of the flag use is from Taiwan Pride 2015,[1] which took place in Taipei on 31 October 2015.[2] The examples from the following two years are very rare, the only currently known one being from the Amsterdam Pride 2017.[3]

In 2018, there were many more examples. The earliest currently known one is from Wellington, New Zealand, on 17 May 2018, when the flag was hoisted before the Parliament to mark the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. The flag was flown together with the Rainbow Flag, the transgender flag (by Monica Helms), and the BiPride Flag, and the day was officially called the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism & Transphobia (word Intersexism was sometimes replaced with the Intersex-phobia).[4,5] Later the same year, the flag was also used at the Capital Pride Parade in Washington, DC,[6,7,8] Utrecht Pride,[9] Christopher Street Day Berlin,[10,11] and Rotterdam Pride.[12,13]

The examples from 2019 are also rather frequent:
  • Pride Serbia, Belgrade [14]
  • Dublin Pride [15]
  • Dyke March Berlin [16,17,18]
  • Christopher Street Day Berlin [19]
  • Brighton Pride [20]
  • Manchester Pride [21]
It shall be borne on the reader's mind that the examples from 2018 and 2019 are just those which happen to be the easiest to find online and most likely do not make a comprehensive list.
