The fat fetishism flag is a horizontally striped field, with five equally spaced stripes. From top to bottom: black, pink (strawberry) [E0167F], cream (french vanilla) [FFF9BD], brown (chocolate) , and black again. The colours are a play on neopolitan ice cream, each colour representing a distinct aspect of the fetish. Created by Kevin Seguin, also known as 'The Cosmopolitan', as a symbol of the fat fetishism community, who describes the flag's entomology in great depth:
"Fat Fetishism is a broad spectrum that includes many different inter-related fetishes. At it's most basic level, Fat Fetishism is an appreciation of size, expansion, adipose, or food related sensations, either in the individual, their partner, or both. Though it is often described as a spectrum, such linear thinking is most often a simplification of a very fluid and dynamic group of fetishes, that are not always as narrow as outsiders may want to characterize them. Although some people have very few specific fetishes, it is not uncommon for people in this group to be interested in multiple avenues of pleasure.
"It is in this particular sense, that the analogy of Neapolitan ice cream flavors comes into play. Each color on this flag represents a different group of fetishes that are aspects of the whole community. Although individuals will have their differences and often arguments with others who have different fetishes, they are all linked by the primary essence that binds their separate kinks into one group - as all three flavors are side-by-side. Much in the same way that while some people prefer only one flavor of ice cream, some prefer two, and others all three in the Neapolitan box. Sometimes we are in the mood for one flavor, and at other times we are in the mood for another. Although we can all be considered Fat Fetishists, each person's expression is entirely individual, and their interpretation of this unifying symbol is completely unique.
"Vanilla is represented by the French vanilla colored stripe on the flag. It is the flavor of Fat and Belly Worship. It represents the fetishistic nature of the ample frame of fat people in the raw sense - holistically. Although in certain contexts, vanilla is considered to be a flavor representing an non-fetishist, it is best understood that although it is often considered a mild flavor, within the context of Fat Fetishism is it still just as tasty to some as the other two flavors.
"Strawberry is represented by the pink stripe on the flag. It is the flavor of Fat Roleplay, and by extension, it is one of the most diverse. Inflation, Bloating, Stuffing, Padding, and even Vore can be represented by this flavor, as well as many of the other creative expressions of roleplay and sensory activities that simulate certain physiological/psychological states.
"Chocolate is represented by the brown stripe. It is the flavor of Weight Gain, Encouragement, and Feederism. Chocolate can best be understood as a very visceral flavor, that is focused more on the results of gluttony, and the weight it confers on an individual or group of individuals - often two sexual partners.
"The black stripes on the top and bottom not only frame the Neapolitan colors, but represent other fetishes that fat fetishists often incorporate, including those from BDSM and Leather, and many more.
"The heart symbol ties in not only the meaning of the flag colors, but is respectful of the history of fetish flags dating back to the original leather fetish flag (and those that it spawned) - In the end, this is all about love and affection.
"The distribution of this symbol to not only the Fat Fetish Community, but the rest of the fetish community at large is mainly in its infancy stages. And although it may catch on in a large scale, the use of the symbol and its variants are entirely voluntary. It is voluntary because like any symbol of its kind, there are risks as well as benifits - each individual accepting the consequence of their personal solidarity and self-identification with the rest of the Fat Fetish Community."
