Main Document

The polyamory pride flag was designed by Jim Evans in 1995. The polyamory pride flag consists of three equal horizontal colored stripes, blue, red, and black, with a gold Greek lowercase letter 'pi' in the center of the flag.

Polyamory refers to the ability and desire to be in a consensual relationship with more than one person at once. This is distinct from cheating, which is non-consensual and unethical. People who identify as polyamorous may believe in open relationships with a conscious management of jealousy and reject the view that sexual and relational exclusivity are prerequisites for deep, committed, long-term, loving relationships. Others prefer to restrict their sexual activity to only members of the group, a closed polyamorous relationship that is usually referred to as polyfidelity.

NOTE: Like many other LGBTQ+ themed flags, there are variations of the polyamorous flag. Some variations include removing the pi symbol and replacing it with an infinity heart symbol. The infinite heart symbol has been a recurring aspect of variations of the polyamorous flag - but the original flag, as shown below, is still the most agreed upon and commonly seen.
