There are five colored stripes to represent the five common senses, sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell, but together they also represent lesser known senses and concepts. White represents gender. The brighter stripes represent projective synesthesia, and the duller stripes represent associative synesthesia.

Synesthegender is a neurogender defined as "when one’s perception of gender is affected by their synesthesia. This could be their own gender, or gender in general…Synesthesia is most commonly known to combine senses, for example allowing someone to hear colors, but it can also affect preception [sic] of concepts and symbols such as letters, units of time, and genders."1
