Neutrois is the name for a "neutral" (neither male nor female) gender identity; that may be identical with genderlessness, as in agender but may also differ from it. [1,2] The word "neutrois" was created by H. A. Burnham in 1995 and is supposed to be a combination of French words neutre (meaning "neutral" or "neuter") and trois ("three," as in "third gender"); the English pronunciation varies, as the French words contain the sounds which do not normally exist in English language.

About the flag

Neutrois Pride flag is a white-green-black horizontal tricolor. White color stands for neutral, unidentified, or questioning gender, while black is for agender or genderlessness; dark chartreuse green, the particular shade used in this flag, is the complementary color of lavender, the color which is a mixture of blue and pink (traditional "male" and "female" colors), thus symbolizing the gender which is not male or female or a mix of those. [1,2] The symbolism of dark chartreuse green seems to be borrowed from the Genderqueer Pride flag although the actual shade differs somewhat [3] - it is made lighter here, possibly to make it more distinctive against black. This would mean that the creation date, which was otherwise impossible to find so far, would be sometime after that of the Genderqueer Pride flag - the earliest possible would be in 2011. The flag is still very rarely used: the only currently known photo was taken in Taipei, Taiwan, at the Taiwan Pride Parade 2017. [4]
