The rainbow flag, sometimes called ‘the freedom flag’, has been used as a symbol of gay and lesbian pride since the 1970s.
On Monday, July 23, the St. John’s Pride Committee will host a celebration, press conference, and rainbow flag raising ceremony at the St. John’s City Hall. Mayor Wells will be there to help launch the week. (Last year he helped haul up the flag too.)
