Overlapping Triangles

The two triangles are often known as ‘biangles’ (bi as opposed to tri!), one coloured blue, one coloured pink, overlapping in the middle to make a purple colour. The three colours are the same as the bisexual pride flag.

The pink triangle was used in Nazi Germany to designate gay men and was later adopted as a symbol of gay pride. The origin of the overlapping ‘biangles’, although based on the Nazi German triangle, is unknown.
