    The original Athenian flag.
    The alternate Athenian flag.

    Athenian (or Athenic or Minervan) refers to someone who does not experience at least one type of attraction. It includes individuals on the asexual, aromantic, aplatonic, asensual, ansthetic, and any other lack of tertiary attraction spectrums. It is based on terms like achillean and sapphic.

    History

    Tumblr user Disney-swiftie coined Athenian/Minervan on September 7th, 2020.[1] The term was named after the Greek goddess Athena, who is commonly interpreted as asexual and aromantic in modern times, and Minervan comes from the name Minerva, Athena's Roman equivalent. Chaoticcylinder created alternate terms on December 10th, 2020, to distinguish the term from the word for someone from Athens.

    Flag

    Disney-swiftie created the original flag on September 7th, 2020. Purple represents asexual individuals, white represents all a-spec individuals, green represents aromantic individuals, and olive represents Athena/Minerva.

    Chaoticcylinder created an alternate flag on December 10th, 2020. The purple stripes represent asexual and ace-spec individuals, the white stripe represents a lack of attraction in general and encompasses all other individuals who lack attraction, and the green in the leaves represents aromantic and aro-spec individuals.
