Created by LGBTQ social entrepreneur, founder of OutBüro – the LGBTQ Professional and Entrepreneur Community, and artist Dennis Velco in July 2020 in an attempt to represent the full LGBQ spectrum in an inclusive manner building upon the tradition, progress, and color inclusive designs. At the foundation and widest encircling colors are those that represent persons of color. White on the top while black on the foundation bottom as in the light spectrum all colors in between. Artistically black is a weighted, heavy color and in a simple design makes sense to represent the grounding base. The circle is a universal symbol with extensive meaning. It represents the notions of totality, wholeness, original perfection, the self, the infinite, eternity, timelessness, all cyclic movement, and a higher power. In the Intersectional Pride Flag, transparent circles of color overlap the strips and other circles creating structure and numerous additional shades of color. At the center is a yellow circle often referenced in other Pride Flag as representing gender and non-gender. It sits over Pink and Blue interlocking circles that are encompassed and intertwined with magenta, a pinkish purple all together harkening to complexities and spectrums of gender identity and expressions with complementary color flanking on either side balancing the composition that is you.
Notice how then black and white circles break the border boundaries and overlap into the other color strips. Just as LGBTQ+ persons break boundaries and strive to reach and grow beyond imposed borders.
Due to the design as noted many ranges of colors are present. I specifically left out additional symbols other than the stripe and the circle. I left current and future specific iconography to others to serve unique subcultures and the fetish community.
Critics and comments welcomed. The design needs some fine touch adjustment as it was created in a PowerPoint-like software without fine graphic editing ability.
