Mothman Pride Flag
🏴 3' x 5' Mothman Rainbow Pride Flag designed by Flags For Good Employee Morgan Boyer.
✍️ Morgan's Design Notes: Cryptids are weird & in weird spaces, non-normative orientations and identities feel less stigmatized. This can lead to a cycle where there start to be more and more queer and trans people in a space, further claiming it for those communities. And while there will be bigots in every cultural space, circles with “oddball” reputations tend to feel more accepting. I was reading a blog & the blogger put it in a great way— in the event that their identity is challenged in cryptid spaces, they feel like they can better defend it because they’ve got a built in trump card: “you’re going to tell me you believe in Mothman but not gay people?” the idea of homophobia and transphobia existing in cryptid spaces was absurd because those spaces are explicitly built on the premise of accepting things that “normal” society won’t.
A repossession and hijacking of the narrative that the LGBTQ+ community is malicious or just a cute woodland friend showing pride? You decide.
Our flags are durable 200D polyester (most flags you'll find on the internet are cheap ~75D). In our testing, we selected 200D as the perfect flag material; anything heavier doesn't fly well and the "back" doesn't get enough ink, anything lighter feels cheap and wont last very long.
We print this flag as a one-sided print and make sure that the back has ample (around 90%) bleed-through.
Each flag is folded by hand on our dining room table and ready to be used on a flag pole, boat, hung on a wall, or to proudly march with.
I've purchased a fair amount of flags and this one lands in the "OKAY" section with it's construction. My main issue is that the stitching down the sides is uneven which causes it to pull on the sides and not hang straight. Will check back on fading.
This was a 3'x5' single side printed flag.
