A proposed flag meant to represent the Master/slave lifestyle was unveiled at the Master/slave Conference 2005 in Washington, D.C., on July 29.
Attendees at the conference were offered bumper stickers of the flag. The accompanying label reads:
"This symbol is offered as a representation of the Dominant / submissive or Master / slave Lifestyle. This simplistic design was created by combining established ideogrammic symbols. The vertical stripe is a universal symbol meaning power or dominance. The set of three horizontal stripes is a universal symbol meaning passive or submissive. The flag is a basic black with a white border. The Dom/sub symbols are in red and in the center. The intent was to create a symbol that represents the foundation of the Master/slave dynamic which is Dominance and submissiveness."
