Emmengard's Plural Rings

From Pluralpedia, the collaborative plurality dictionary
emmengard's plural rings (n.)

This page is for the plural rings associated with Emmengard's origin terms. For information on the rings themselves, see Plural Rings.

The plural rings are a widely recognized plurality pride icon. This version was created by the Emmengard system, and is one of the most popular/well-known versions. The colors are not necessary — simply four interlocking rings can be used as well — but the symbolism and specificity of the colors are important.

The icon is composed of four rings creating a Venn diagram. Each of the rings represents a type of plurality, which have terms that were coined to represent them:

  • A yellow ring at the top for unknown systems.
  • A green ring on the left for adaptive systems.
  • A red ring on the right for created systems, such as parogenic systems.
  • A blue ring on the bottom for spontaneous systems.

All of the rings overlap with mixing of their colors, indicating how varied plural experiences are, and acknowledging mixed origin systems.
