We have featured articles on the leather/Bear/Rubber/Pride and numerous other flags in previous editions all of which can be found online at www.Alphatribe.com. Our current favourite is the gorgeous Master And Slave Flag.
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 that is based in authority-based relationships.
More than a decade later, the community has embraced the Master/slave Flag. Since its creation in 2005, the Master/slave flag has been embraced worldwide and representations of the flag on pins and stickers can be seen at major events. Many Masters and slaves have included it in their websites and profiles. And the flag has been incorporated as parts of titleholders’ patches, family’s crests, and event symbols.
Since 2009, the Master/slave Conference in DC honours the emblem by holding the “Master/slave Flag Breakfast” on the Monday (Labor Day) of the event. The breakfast always includes a guest speaker for a Q&A session. Past speakers include Mama Vi Johnson, Laura Antoniou, Raven Kaldera and slaveboy Joshua, Master Skip Chasey, slave Rick, Mistress Susan and slave Teagan, and Sir Stephen and his Household.
