In 2021, intersex rights activist and founder of Intersex Equality Rights UK, Valentino Vecchietti, made a variation of the Progress Pride Flag by including the motif of the Intersex flag. The Intersex flag itself was designed in 2013 by Morgan Carpenter, Executive Director of Intersex Human Rights Australia.
The inclusion of the Intersex flag into the Progress flag highlights that the rights and bodily autonomy of intersex people has a long way to go, with most countries in the world still allowing non-consensual medical interventions against intersex people.
