Acarnal is a term under the ARCsexual umbrella. It is another word for sex-indifferent or sex neutral, meaning someone who has no strong feelings about sex, either positive or negative. The term sex-indifferent is commonly associated with the asexual community. The term acarnal can be used by asexuals and by sex-indifferent allosexuals.
The flag was designed by Mod Fy on Tumblr account beyond-mogai-pride-flags on January 15, 2018. The flag was originally made to be used for sex-indifferent, but since acarnal and sex-neutral share a definition, it's also used here. The flag's color meanings are currently unknown, but it can be assumed that the purple on the flag represents lack of sexual attraction; a common theme in ace-spec flags.
An alternate acarnal flag was made by ElderflowerJuice on September 3, 2021. It is represented by a symbol of Hephaestus.
