flag design candidate
this polyamorous flag design was created by Kristyn Ende.
A rectangular flag with four curved bands of color sweeping across a yellow field from the lower left to the upper right corner of the image, beginning wide and narrowing toward the top. The yellow field fills the top left segment of the image. In order from left to right, the bands of color are bright red-orange, lavender, indigo, and dark purple. The curving lines of this design follow the curve of geometric heart shapes, as if fanned out and facing toward the viewer like they’re being shown a deck of cards.
The curving lines of this design follow the curve of geometric heart shapes fanned out and facing toward the viewer as if they’re being shown a deck of cards. The hearts disappear beyond the edges of the image and continue ad infinitum to imply the boundlessness of non-monogamous love.
The upward motion in the curves represents growth and change—to grow in understanding, love, and curiosity for ourselves and others, and the commitment to continually reassess and change.
The color symbolism borrows ideas from the original Jim Evans "Pi" flag, with a more nuanced and modern sensibility:
Yellow for courage in our relationships and in living as openly non-monogamous.
Red for all, including non-romantic varieties of love and affection.
Lavender for openness and honesty within ourselves and to our partners.
Indigo for unity between all approaches and varieties of non-monogamous practice.
Dark Purple for a foundation of abundant love and joy.
The yellow canton (top-left corner) also leaves room for users to modify the image with a symbol of their choosing in what is traditionally a flag’s “place of honor.” With or without an added icon, the flag’s colors and curves set it apart as a distinctively non-monogamous image.
