Boy Pride (of Boi Pride) flag is meant to represent Boys/Bois, a subgroup of the leather subculture. The word originally denoted younger and submissive gay men with an appreciation for older and dominant men (these being called Sirs, Masters or Dads), who were often newcomers to the community as well. In time, however, its use seems to have become less strict in terms of the age and relation role, so nowadays it is sometimes used almost as a synonym for a leatherman, depending on the user's point of view.

The flag was first presented at Mid-Atlantic Leather 1998, a gathering of leather people. It was created by Keith Pollanen, who got the inspiration after having met and talked with Tony DeBlase, creator of the Leather Pride Flag. All the elements of the model flag are kept here, but the stripes are arranged diagonally to symbolize the relation of Sir (represented by top left corner) and Boy/Boi (represented by bottom right corner). The heart was moved to the top right corner "because boys are on the right", by authors's own words [1], which is often interpreted as "to show where the boy's heart is" in other available descriptions of the flag [2, 3]. Finally, blue color was replaced with green to represent the boys/bois as newbies ("greenhorns"). The size of heart might vary according to presented images, but the only photos of the flag currently available [5, 6] show a smallish heart, overlapping two stripes only (shown in the attached image).

The whole design obviously reflects the original use of word "boy/boi", even though its present-day use as the basis for logos of some leathermen clubs, which also use phrase "boys of leather" in their name, seems to have little in common with that.
