    Polyromantic, also spelled plyromantic or poliromantic, refers to someone who is romantically attracted to many, but not all, genders. For example, a polyromantic individual could be attracted to all genders except men. Or, a polyromantic individual could be attracted only to non-binary individuals, genderfluid individuals, and male-aligned individuals.

    Polyromantic generally implies that an individual is attracted to more than two genders, but they can be attracted to any number of genders anywhere from two genders to all genders besides one.

    Polyromantic falls under the multiromantic umbrella. It can be similar to biromantic and other pluralian identities. The difference between these identities usually comes down to individual preference, particularly where individuals may feel that different terms communicate their individual experience of attraction with more accuracy.

    The sexual counterpart is polysexual.

    History and Flag

    It is currently unknown who coined this term, but it was coined before July 4, 2015.[1] The first flag specifically for polyromantic was the polysexual flag with the heart overlay. It is unknown who created it but it existed at least before May 10, 2016.[2]

    Another flag was designed by deactivated Tumblr user, pride-flags-for-us, on or before August 30, 2015.[3]

    The alternative polyromantic flag was designed by an anonymous wiki user on October 21, 2020. It is designed to be easier on the eyes, while also maintaining most of the same meaning. In addition to the original stripe meanings, the lighter pink and blue stripes also represent a-spec poly individuals. The very light green (nearly white) stripes represents peace, as well as transgender poly individuals. It is intended to represent polyromantic individuals, but it can be used for polysexuality as well.
