Printed with an image of the Lesbian Pride 5 Stripes Flag we chose to use Lavender for the sides, a color with a long past within the lesbian herstory. It is the color of desire referenced in the lyrics of 7th century BC poet Sappho. In the 1920's, violets where gifted between women to signal sapphic interest. In 1970, the "Lavender Menace" was a group of radical lesbian activists who forced the conversation of lesbian within the feminist movement at National Organization for Women's Second Congress to Unite Women.
"Various lesbian flags have been used to symbolise the lesbian community. Since 1999, many designs have been proposed and used. Although personal preferences exist, as well as various controversies, no design has been widely accepted by the community as the lesbian flag.
The "orange-pink" lesbian flag, modeled after the seven-band pink flag, was introduced on Tumblr by blogger Emily Gwen in 2018. The colors include dark orange for "gender non-conformity", orange for "independence", light orange for "community", white for "unique relationships to womanhood", pink for "serenity and peace", dusty pink for "love and sex", and dark rose for "femininity". A five-stripes version was soon derived from the 2018 colors." en.wikipedia.org
