English: Black Triangle, lesbian symbol of pride. Created by Fibonacci.
The black triangle is a lesbian or feminist symbol of pride and solidarity. The symbol originates from Nazi concentration camps, where every prisoner had to wear one of the Nazi concentration camp badges on their jacket, the colour of which categorised them according "their kind". Individuals deemed "asocial" had to wear the black triangle. In the Nazis' meticulous records there is no word of the black triangle having been imposed on lesbians, or of lesbians as a group being confined to concentration camps. Whatever the reason, lesbians have over time claimed the black triangle as a symbol of defiance against repression and discrimination, and it is considered a counterpart to the Gay Pink Triangle.
Español: Triángulo negro, símbolo del lesbianismo. Creado por Fibonacci.
El Triángulo Negro fue utilizado para identificar mujeres "socialmente inaceptables", según los nazis. Las lesbianas fueron incluidas en esta clasificación. Ahora, las lesbianas han reclamado el triángulo negro como su símbolo contra la represión y la discriminación así como los hombres homosexuales han reclamado el triángulo rosa.
日本語: ブラック・トライアングル。レズビアンのシンボル。Fibonacci作成。
Srpskohrvatski / српскохрватски: Crni trougao, lezbejski simbol ponosa. Napravio: Fibonacci.
Crni trougao je korišćen za obeležavanje "asocijalnih" osoba, koje su tako bile označene od strane nacista. Lezbejke su bile, pored ostalih, uključene u tu grupu. Danas lezbejke prihvataju Crni trougao kao simbol njihovog otpora i borbe protiv represije i diskriminacije, jednako kao što gejevi prihvataju Ružičasti trougao.
