Hello fellow Aspies. I was recently reading an article on here about Aspie symbols (I couldn't think of any), but I do think we Aspies need a greater sense of unification. I also learned there was a five-color LGBT flag, and, if they have a flag, we should be able to, too. After a day of thinking, this is what I came up with:

The Aspergian Flag! (Or the Golden Strip, as I call it.)

It's based off of multiple things. The general layout of the flag is based off of the modern-day Austrian flag, as Hans Asperger was from Austria. It represents us Aspies (gold) in a world controlled by NTs (green).

Something like the colors of a siamese cat.

I'm thinking more of a madras background. Make madras the official Asperger print!

I chose gold because I read gold represents willpower and some other stuff I felt Asperger's stood for. I chose green for NTs just because it fit.

I like it, but maybe it's a little too John Deere....

Putting a little red star in the center of the yellow band might help.

Loved it! I think a symbol would not only unite us a little more but it would also make the general public aware that asperger is not a disease, just a different brain with wonderful capabilities!
Btw loved the colors as well, im from Brazil xD

Or maybe a vertical red strip crossing the yellow one (red represents courage and revolution)

P.S. The flag is now my Facebook default picture.

I think the whole flag idea (regardless of design) is a huge load of crap and it's counterproductive.

That's why I burn the American one regularly.

I think the design for the flag should be based on an Earth centered universe with spirographic orbits of the planets

Okay, I changed it up a bit. I added a little red rectangle in the center. I personally didn't like the idea, but dyingofpoetry seems to. I also changed the green NT fields to aquamarine, because it does look kind of Brazilian/John Deere-ish, and I'm kind of going for its own feel. Also, I think a lot of Middle East flasg have a green/while layout, so it might look Islamic.

Okay, now THAT"s my Facebook default picture.

Edit: This shade of green actually looks a lot less Islamic.

An Aspie without a flag is like a fish without a bicycle.
