In August 2010, after a period of debate over having an asexual flag and how to set up a system to create one, and contacting as many asexual communities as possible, a flag was announced as the asexual pride flag by one of the teams involved. The final flag had been a popular candidate and had previously seen use in online forums outside of AVEN. The final vote was held on a survey system outside of AVEN where the main flag creation efforts were organized. The flag colors have been used in artwork and referenced in articles about the sexuality.In 2009, AVEN members participated in the first asexual entry into an American pride parade when they walked in the San Francisco Pride Parade.

Asexual Ace Card Spade

The ace of hearts and ace of spades are used in the asexual community to represent romantic orientation of asexuals (due to members referring themselves as “ace”).  The ace of hearts card is used to represent romantic asexuals while the ace of spades card is used to represent aromatic asexuals. Not all people within the asexual community use this method; however, there are some who do.

Some members of the asexual community opt to wear a black ring on the middle finger of their right hand as a form of identification.
