Asexual Pride Flag (Ace Flag) – Love doesn’t equal sex

Asexy and I know it.

The asexuality flag was designed in 2010 during a month-long competition promoted by AVEN – Asexual visibility and education network. The current design with four stripes was chosen after an online vote by members of various asexual communities. The winning design was created by AVEN user “standup”.

The flag has four colours: black, gray, white and purple. Black represents asexuality. Gray represents demisexuality and gray-asexuality. White represents allies and partners. Purple represents community. Those colours were chosen as the same ones that are part of AVEN’s logo.

Understanding Asexual People

Asexuality, unlike sexual orientation and sexual orientation identity, is not commonly known about in the public sphere. While you can easily find out about heterosexuality and homosexuality (among other sexualities), you have to do more digging to uncover what asexuality means.

An asexual or non-sexual person is someone who does not experience sexual attraction. Some asexual people may still have romantic relationships (although they usually do not), and most of them are hetero-romantic.

According to The Trevor Project, asexuality is an umbrella term, and exists on a spectrum. Asexual people – also known as “Ace” or “Aces” – may have little interest in having sex, even though they desire emotionally intimate relationships. Within the ace community there are many ways for people to identify.
