Comox celebrates Pride Week

On Monday, July 22, Mayor Russ Arnott raised the Pride Flag at Comox Town Hall in recognition of Pride Week.

Mayor Arnott, joined by Couns. McGowan, McKenna and Minions, welcomed members of the Comox Valley Pride Society and guests in raising this year’s flag in celebration of Pride Week in the Comox Valley.

This year, a new flag was raised which consists of eight colours versus the previous flag of six. Each colour has a different meaning – hot pink, which represents sex, red for life, orange for healing, yellow signifying sunlight, green for nature, turquoise to represent art, indigo for harmony and violet for spirit.

“We are pleased to once again raise the Pride Flag in our community in celebration of Pride Week,” said Mayor Arnott. “We value the uniqueness and individuality of our citizens and recognize the importance of celebrating this diversity and inclusiveness in our community”.
