The Trans/Transgender Pride Flag was created by American trans woman Monica Helms in 1999, and was first shown at a pride parade in Phoenix, Arizona, United States in 2000.

The flag represents the transgender community and consists of five horizontal stripes: two light blue, two pink, and one white in the center. The blue stripes at the top and bottom represent the traditional associated with maleness, the pink stripes, with female-ness, and the white, for those who are intersex, transitioning, or who self-identify with a neutral or undefined gender.
