Vermil is a term from the pallet system of non-binary gender presentation. It's used to describe non-binary people's gender presentation without having to use the binary language like "masculine" or "woman-aligned". It is similar to the lesbian terms "butch" and "femme". The term was designed to be used along side the galactian alignment system, but can be used by any non-binary person. For example a masculine presenting, feminine aligned nonbinary person could call themself vermil lunarian.
Flag and Other Symbols
The flag was designed by Tumblr user Elfiot, the coiner of the term.
The flag was meant to replicate the solarian flag’s warm colors. It has the alchemical symbol for fire in the center, as fire considered a masculine element.
Other vermil symbols include, the sun, fire, and "masculine" energies.
Vermil is derived from the word vermilion, which is a shade of red.
