Demisexual pride flag
Demisexuality falls within the spectrum of asexuality, where an individual doesn’t experience sexual attraction to someone until they’ve formed an emotional connection with them. Because demisexuality falls within asexuality, their flags share the same colours, but come with different shapes.
It’s not known who designed the demisexual pride flag, though it’s believed to be inspired by the asexual pride flag in 2010.

- Purple represents community, because the AVEN (Asexual Visibility and Education Network) website had a purple colour scheme
