The Transgender Pride Flag

The trangender pride flag was designed in 1999 by a trans woman by the name of Monica Helms. This is what she said about her design:
"The stripes at the top and bottom are light blue, the traditional color for baby boys. The stripes next to them are pink, the traditional color for baby girls. The stripe in the middle is white, for those who are intersex, transitioning or consider themselves having a neutral or undefined gender. The pattern is such that no matter which way you fly it, it is always correct, signifying us finding correctness in our lives"
 This is one a few flags that are around but is the most prominent.
