Disability Garden Flag
Ways to rock it:
🏴 18" x 12" Disability garden flag with pole pocket and double stitched edges to reduce fraying.
✍️ The Design: The original Disability Pride Flag was created by Ann Magill, a disabled woman, and was a set of zigzag lines on a black background. In 2021, she, with help of the disabled community, updated the flag to this new design. The colors have been muted and rearranged to reduce eye strain, and each stripe also has a slightly different level of brightness (brightest in the center and darkening outward), so that even those with some form of color blindness can distinguish the stripes. The design includes:
Having All Six "Standard" Flag Colors: signifying that Disability Community is pan-national, spanning borders between states and nations.
The Black Field: Mourning and rage for victims of ableist violence and abuse
The Diagonal Band: "Cutting across" the walls and barriers that separate the disabled from normate society, also light and creativity cutting through the darkness
The White Stripe: Invisible and Undiagnosed Disabilities
The Red Stripe: Physical Disabilities
The Gold Stripe: Neurodivergence
The Blue Stripe: Psychiatric Disabilities
The Green Stripe: Sensory Disabilities
Our garden flags are double-sided so you can see the design from either side. They are constructed of three layers, two art layers sandwiching a blackout fabric in between.
No but you can bundle one with your flag!
Our garden flags are 18 inches tall by 12 inches wide which fit most standard garden poles. They have a pole pocket along the top to slide into the horizontal bar of your pole.
Make your garden a bit more colorful! Or you can use these as perfect window hangers as a smaller way to display a flag on your house. Or put it on your apartment/dorm door! Or your cubicle! I could go on...
Glad to have a Disability Pride Flag! I look forward to hanging it in my yard. The flag design is clear and the material feels sturdy.
High quality garden flag. Holds up well to the elements.
