The bisexual pride flag was designed by Michael Page in to give the bisexual community its symbol comparable to the gay pride flag of the larger LGBT community. He aimed to increase the visibility of bisexuals, both among society as a whole and within the LGBT community. The first bisexual pride flag was unveiled at the BiCafe's first-anniversary party  on December 5, In designing the Bi Pride Flag, I selected the colors and overlap pattern of the 'bi angles' symbol. Biangles, or bisexuality triangles, are another symbol for the bisexual community with unclear origins. The crescent moon symbol is another symbol for bisexuality that deliberately avoids the imagery of the pink triangle.

LGBTQIA+ Flags and Symbols
The LGBT community has adopted certain symbols for self-identification to demonstrate unity, pride , shared values, and allegiance to one another. LGBT symbols communicate ideas, concepts, and identity both within their communities and to mainstream culture.

He designed the flag as a "symbol of hope" and liberation, and an alternative to the symbolism of the pink triangle.
Gilbert Baker, a San Francisco artist, designed the rainbow flag in response to a need for a symbol that could be used year after year. Baker borrowed symbolism from the civil rights and hippie movements, and created a flag that has gained worldwide recognition. After the assassination of gay San Francisco City Supervisor Harvey Milk on November 27, , demand for the rainbow flag greatly increased. To meet demand, the Paramount Flag Company began selling a version of the flag using stock rainbow fabric with seven stripes using the colors red, orange, yellow, green, turquoise, blue, and violet.
