The Transgender Pride Flag
The Trans flag, or Transgender Pride flag was created by Monica Helms in 1999, and was first shown at a pride parade in Phoenix, Arizona, United States in 2000.

Monica Helms describes the meaning of the transgender flag as follows:

"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."[1]

On Trans Day of Remembrance, the Brighton council flies this flag.[2]

The flag is incorporated into the logo of the Croydon Trans Group.
