Project Team email address!
The goal of this thread is to collect opinions based on what the asexual flag should actually look like. (ie, what is important to have in an ace pride flag.) We are trying to decide things like what symbols to use, what colors are best, and make other small decisions before re-starting the voting process. This thread is also open to any new flag submissions people come up with, but there are a few guidelines that we would prefer these new flags to adhere to. If you are viewing this thread as someone who is not a member of AVEN, feel free to create an account or ask a friend to post your idea.
This flag is not meant to be officially official and is merely a flag that the community can choose to use if they so wish.
We are currently working on spreading the word about a flag to non-English speaking communities. If you are fluent, or near-fluent, in another language, we would very much appreciate any assistance you could provide in getting the message out there about this project!
- What symbols do we want to use? (Ace triangle, ring, spade, etc?)
- Establishing definitions of current symbols
- What specific types of flags does the community prefer?
- Stay away from flags that look like they may belong to a country. (Ex. No tricolor vertical stripes)
- Stay away from gradients.
- Suggested color scheme: white, grey, black, purple
- Keep the flags relatively simple (not busy with images/symbols)
Starting with this thread, I will no longer be accepting any flags that don't meet the above guidelines. This is in order to keep the next polling process simpler, with more refined designs. Spend time on your submission.
Thread End Date:
Saturday, July 24th
On Sunday, July 11, I will be recording the results from the first round of flag voting. After that, voting will be temporarily put on hold until we can gather more submissions and input from more people, including those that are not active on AVEN or who speak other languages.
Voting will re-commence on Sunday, July 25th as a continuation of the first round with the addition of recent submissions. A week will be assigned for each voting round. The current number of rounds is currently unknown, as I'm not sure how many submissions will be added, but ideally there should only be two more.

If you know of any Asexual communities that are not listed above, please spread the news and give me a link to where your post is (even if it's not in English!)
Please use this thread to discuss anything and everything about the future Asexual Flag. As important points are made, I will be sure to include them in this main post. Get creative!
