History and Flag
The term and flag were created by Tumblr user mogai-flag-central on December 25, 2018. The original definition included mentions of pastelyellowgender and pastelbluegender but did not define them.
The term was expanded to an umbrella term by FANDOM users Cosmic Lemon151 and Manzenk0 on May 7, 2021. The flag was created by FANDOM user Manzenk0 at the same time. The colors of the flag flow together fluidly to represent the pastel color spectrum.
