Flag Description

Wikipedia serves up an image of an early 20th Century lapel pin in the form of a flag with bearing the slogan 'Votes for Women': en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Votes_for_Women_lapel_pin_(Nancy).jpg. Even if it was not flown as a real flag, it is nonetheless a rare example of a flagoid associated with the women's suffrage movement.

A horizontal tricolor used by late 19th century suffragettes. Any idea about the significance of the colors? Was this use restricted to the United States?

The page on Wikipedia says: "Photograph of an early 20th century British Women's Suffrage lapel pin" but it looks green v. black on my monitor. This appears to be one of the flag-like badges used by suffragette movements. www.edwardianemporium.co.uk/ephemera/ shows the image of the Women's Social and Political Union in green-white-purple (circa 1903). The image shown appears to be consistent with the Women's Freedom League and issued in 1909: books.google.com/books?id=Wo89DfZ-T6AC&pg=PA305&lpg=PA305&dq=%22votes+for+women%22+pin&source=web&ots=Dg9Ae4v-bl&sig=J2LpbDYoXyme972yYRqT7SEMAi4&hl=en&sa=X&oi=book_result&resnum=6&ct=result#PPA307,M1

However on a related note: the New York Times notes that the anti-suffragettes in a meeting reported on December 11, 1912 adopted English anti-suffragette colors in the form of a pin that would be black, white and rose (the English anti-suffragettes wearing a black suit, white blouse and cluster of roses). No indication of lettering provided.

The NY Times also reported on a blue flag used by Suffragettes that was apparently a blue flag on which a star was added whenever a state passed legislation that allowed a woman to vote. (November 11, 1910). Again no indication of lettering indicated.
