Created by Morgan Carpenter of Intersex Human Rights Australia in 2013, the intersex flag is a purple circle on a yellow background. New Zealand is the first country where the intersex flag was raised outside the national parliament in 2017.

*🇺🇳Intersex people are individuals born with any of several sex characteristics including chromosome patterns, gonads, or genitals that, according to the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, "do not fit typical binary notions of male or female bodies”. It has been estimated 1 to 2% of the population may be intersex (Fauso-Sterling, 2000). Increasingly referred to as “Differences of Sex Development”, intersex traits are traditionally classified as “Disorders of Sex Development” (DSD) in medical literature. Intersex infants and children, such as those with ambiguous outer genitalia, may be surgically and/or hormonally altered and sometimes sterilized. The World Health Organization, the Australian Parliament and German and Swiss ethics institutes have recognized these practices as human rights abuses. The Council of Europe recognized the right for intersex persons not to undergo sex assignment treatment in 2015. Few countries protect intersex people from discrimination.
