Disability Pride Flag

Each color stripe has a meaning:

Red - physical disabilities

Gold - neurodiversity

White - invisible disabilities and disabilities that haven't yet been diagnosed

Blue - emotional and psychiatric disabilities, including mental illness, anxiety, and depression

Green - for sensory disabilities, including deafness, blindness, lack of smell, lack of taste, audio processing disorder, and all other sensory disabilities

The faded black background mourning and rage for victims of ableist violence and abuse. The diagonal Bband cuts across the walls and barriers that separate the disabled from normate society, also representing light and creativity cutting through the darkness.
