Nonbinary Flag – Beyond Pink and Blue

Because gender is more than just a binary.

The nonbinary pride flag was created in 2014 by a Tumblr user named Kye Rowan. Kye, a 17-year-old non-binary person, created the nonbinary flag to complement the genderqueer flag as some people didn’t feel represented by the genderqueer flag. The flags are meant to be used together and not one to replace the other.

On the nonbinary flag, the yellow stands for the gender that are outside the male-female binary. White, a color that consists of all colors mixed together, stands for multi-gendered people. Purple stands for people who are some combination of male and female.



Understanding Non-Binary People

Nonbinary is a term for people who don’t identify as male or female. It’s a broad term that can include anyone who feels like they don’t fit into the binary gender system.

It’s important to note that nonbinary isn’t the same thing as being transgender, although some non-binary people are also transgender. Being transgender means that you feel like you were born in the wrong body; your gender identity doesn’t match your biological sex.

If you think of yourself as nonbinary, this might be because:

  • You don’t feel like either male or female fits for you.
  • You see yourself somewhere on a spectrum between “male” and “female.” (For example, maybe one day you feel more feminine than other days.)
