Summary Edit

The "BDSM rights flag", as devised by Tanos for the purpose of symbolizing and expressing support for the idea "that people whose sexuality or relationship preferences include... BDSM deserve the same human rights as everyone else, and should not be discriminated against for pursuing BDSM with consenting adults".[1]

The statement on the Tanos site page says the flag may be used with this intended symbolism "on your own websites, publications, T-shirts, mugs, whatever - whether for personal use or for commercial gain... You do not need to ask our permission to use the design or the image files we make available"; and Tanos himself has personally uploaded a raster image of the flag to Wikipedia under a public domain license (see en:Image:BDSMrightsFlag166x100.png). (See Commons:Village Pump of July 29, 2007 for further discussion of free copyright status for purposes of WikiMedia Commons).

The flag includes the color symbolism of the previous Leather pride flag, and a central emblem somewhat similar to Quagmyr's BDSM Emblem (but different enough to be free from the copyright restrictions which Quagmyr claims on certain specified versions of the Triskelion symbol). Of course, the Triskelion ultimately comes from the description of the Roissy triskelion ring in the "Histoire d'O" by Pauline Réage.

For another "alternative lifestyle" flag by Tanos, see Image:Ownership-flag-Tanos.svg .
