Summary: The tricolor bisexual flag is a pride flag that represents bisexuality, bisexual individuals, and the bisexual community.
The bisexual flag is a pride flag representing bisexuality, bisexual individuals, and the bisexual community. Bi-rights activist Michael Page created the pink, purple, and blue Bisexual Pride Flag in 1998. Michael made the flag so that the bisexual community could have more visibility in the culture rather than just the rainbow flag.
Bisexuals are attracted to people of the same gender and people of different genders. In other words, they’re attracted to 2 or more genders. A 2021 Gallup poll found that more than half of LGBT adults (54.6%) identify as bisexual.
This Bisexual Flag consists of a magenta stripe at the top representing same-gender attraction, a broad blue stripe at the bottom representing opposite-gender attractions, and a narrower purple band occupying the fifth central area, which represents attraction toward both genders. The pink stripe takes up two-fifths of the flag, the purple stripe takes up the middle fifth, and the blue stripe takes up the other two-fifths.
