In 2002 Jennifer Pellinen created a transgender flag [1] Pink & blue stripes: female and male. The middle three purple stripes represent the diversity of the transgender community and genders other than female and male.[2]

Transgender is an umbrella term covering all gender identities or expressions that transgress or transcend society’s rules and concepts of gender. To be trans usually means to identify as a gender other than the gender one was assigned at birth. The category of transgender includes people who have the binary gender identities of female (transgender women) or male (transgender men), and is often framed solely in binary terms. The transgender umbrella does include people with nonbinary gender identities, but not all non-binary people refer to themselves as transgender.
