The aromantic flag, one of several LGBTQ+ pride symbols, stands for those who are not attracted to others romantically. There are several designs for the aro flag, just as the pansexual and lesbian flags. A unique work of visual art and a separate artist are hidden behind each design. However, there aren’t many differences in the meaning and certain aspects of the appearance.
What Does Being Aromantic Mean?
Generally speaking, being aromantic is defined as having little or no interest for romantic connections. Any level of the “aro spectrum” can correspond to the aro status. Some people may believe that they can somewhat commit themselves to romantic relationships, but others may never be able to.
Aromantics have occasionally been misinterpreted, much like many other identities. We describe the five myths surrounding aromanticism in the section below.
Meaning Of The Aromantic Flag
Aromantic flags stand for those who aren’t very interested in or don’t want romantic connections.
The Aro Pride Flag is available in three different styles. Each one is being examined, and the colours’ respective meanings are being broken down.
The Oldest Aromantic Flag
In the early 2010s, National Coalition for Aromantic Visibility made the oldest aro flag available to the general public. Who really created it, though, is still a mystery.
The flag has three horizontal stripes that read: green, yellow, orange, and black, from top to bottom.
For aromanticism, use green, Orange for people who fall into the grey area of the ARO spectrum, Yellow for friendship, People who are romantic yet defy the norms of romance should wear black.
The colours green and yellow were used to make this variation, which was made by Cameron Whimsy. However, there is an additional lighter green stripe below the top green, giving the flag five stripes. The two stripes at the bottom stand for grey and black.
for the aromantic spectrum, green
For platonic love, choose yellow
No of their sexual orientation, grey and black are for all aromantics.
The Official Aromantic Flag
The Aromantic flag currently in use has been the most popular variant so far.
It was developed by Cameron in 2014 with merely a tweak in the center stripe’s hue. White was used in the flag’s design in favor of yellow, which softens the overall tone while maintaining most of the same meaning.
Cameron claims that this version aims to cover the entire aromantic spectrum.
As always, green symbolizes aromanticism (green is the opposite to red, the color of romance)
The aro spectrum is represented by a lighter green.
White represents aesthetic appeal and intimate connections that aren’t sexual.
Gray denotes persons who fall within the “grey area” of the scent spectrum, which means they are not fully aromantic.
Separate from being aromantic, black for all sexual orientations can occur in any member of this group.
