The Bisexual pride flag was designed by Michael Page in 1998. Page’s aim was to show visibility of an otherwise transparent community. Page also felt that the bisexual community felt no connection towards the traditional Rainbow flag.
The colours were adopted from the Bi-triangle symbol. The first bisexual pride flag was revealed on December 5th 1998.
The pink represents sexual attraction to the same sex (gay or lesbian)
The blue represents the attraction to the opposite sex (straight)
The colour purple represents the overlap of the colours and being attracted to both sexes as a bisexual person.
The flag often varies in design and ratios, such as it is often seen with assorted amount of stripes in order to conform with other flags. It is not patented allowing such variants and designs.
