Colors are more than a combination of red and blue or yellow and black. They are non-verbal communication. Colors have symbolism and color meaning that go beyond ink. Green is the color of nature and life. Green grass is the most restful color. Green symbolizes self-respect and well being. Green is the color of balance. It also represents learning, growth and harmony. She brings the "Green" to my life.
Hanky code (also known as flagging) is a way of indicating, usually among gay male casual sex-seekers or BDSM practitioners in the leather subculture, whether they are a top or bottom, and what kind of sex they are seeking, by wearing color-coded handkerchiefs, usually in the back pocket. Hanky code was widely used in the 1970s as a gay code. However today they are also used by many bisexual and pansexual into kink.
Hankies are worn almost exclusively in the rear trouser pocket. The left side of the body for tops and on the right for bottoms. In the past bandanas might be worn tied around the neck (with a knot positioned on either the left or right side) or on the wrist or bicep.
Here my friend Jackson uses his hanky to remain legally covered for Denver's Pride Parade while indicating his interest in fisting. He would normally flag on the right.
