The Leather pride flat is representative of those associated with BDSM leather culture, kind or leather fetishism. This includes leathermen and while it includes those from the LGBT* community it isn’t necessarily exclusive to the LGBT* community. The flag was designed by Tony DeBlase who presented the design at the International Mister Leather event in Chicago on May 28, 1989. In June of 1989 the flag was used by the leather contingent in a Portland pride parade, which was its first appearance at a pride parade.
The Leather pride flag creator, DeBlase, gave this explanation of the design:
“The flag is composed of nine horizontal stripes of equal width. From the top and from the bottom, the stripes alternate black and royal blue. The central stripe is white. In the upper left quadrant of the flag is a large red heart. I will leave it to the viewer to interpret the colors and symbols.”
