"the overall symbolism in the flag is that of a rainbow coming out of a cloud, with a sun in the background."1"

The first MOGAI flag was created on July 18, 2014 by reddit user RadicalGay. They described the symbolism as follows:"the overall symbolism in the flag is that of a rainbow coming out of a cloud, with a sun in the background…[a]dditionally, the flag combines the essences of basically all included identities. The eight-color rainbow is the original pride flag for the LGBTQ community (the pink and teal were eventually removed due to logistic/financial concerns). The monochrome spectrum at the bottom is included in every flag in the ace spectrum (asexual, demisexual, etc.), and agender people. Finally, the purple circle is the focal point of the intersex flag…[f]inally, this flag is different enough from other LGBTQ flags to catch attention and stand out, but not different enough to be confused for something else.2"

The response to this flag was rather lukewarm. As one commenter on the reddit thread put it, "represents what its designed to, but looks a bit meh (still probably the best it can be considering what you are trying to represent)3"

This flag was used as
the logo for Mogai-archive
in the very earliest days
of the blog4.

Either just before, concurrent with, or slightly after the creation of the original MOGAI flag, the original MOGAI coining blog MOGAI-archive used this flag as their logo. It was definitely in use by July 19, 2014, but may have been used earlier5 By August 9, 2014, this flag had been abandoned in favor of the early"official" MOGAI flag.6

Sometime after the creation of the original MOGAI flag, certainly before August 9, 2014 (see above), a new MOGAI flag was created to better represent the community. It's unclear if this flag was also created by tumblr user fancyblogurl (aka dragonbornprivilege/aspiring-to-wisdom/biologistprivilege), who is usually credited as having designed the Updated "Official" MOGAI Flag7.

This flag was created sometime before October 7, 2015, when it was posted on the Pride-Flags deviantart page and credited to fancyblogurl (aka dragonbornprivilege/aspiring-to-wisdom/biologistprivilege)8.. The original post cannot be found, so it's unclear when this flag was made or if it was created by the same person as the Early "Official" MOGAI Flag.
