12 amazing gifts featuring the pansexual Pride flag colours
National Pansexual and Panromantic Pride Day (8 December) is an annual celebration of the community.
The day recognises, celebrates and brings visibility to those who identify as pansexual and panromantic.
If you’re pansexual or have someone in your life that is, then you can get some amazing gifts that rep the pan Pride flag colours.
Since it was created a decade ago, the pansexual flag has increasingly been used by independent artists and bigger companies as part as merch designs.
The flag is pink, yellow and blue and it was created by Twitter user @eviejasper back in 2010 as they realised pansexuality “felt right for how I wanted to relate to and express my orientation”.
Jasper says they created the flag because: “There was no popular pan flag, and the offerings were frankly… ugly. To me. Various shades of purple, P letters, P symbols incorporating gender symbols, infinity symbols. They didn’t feel consistent with the other Pride flags.

“So, on a whim, I decided to design one. I designed it to be pretty, honestly. That was a primary function of it, to have s/t I liked to represent my identity. No point pretending I was trying to be super innovative and deep: I wanted something pretty to plaster on my blog.”
The pink and blue were chosen “because of their gendered traditions”, while the yellow was chosen to represent non-binary people as it is traditionally a non-gendered colour.
The flag has since been fully embraced by the pansexual community, with Jasper saying: “The first time I saw a pansexual flag in real life at my city’s Pride parade I may have had a little cry.”.
Now the pansexual flag is featured on loads of different products including T-shirts, pins, patches, bracelets, phone cases and more.
