Pride Month: Rainbow Crossing In London And The Rainbow Flag In Rouen

Written by 


Pride month was honored in two new cities: London and Rouen!

After West Hollywood and other cities in Canada, Norway and Australia, London decided to make a cross with the colors of the rainbow flag.

This rainbow crossing is in Pall Mall, and Suffolk Street, near Trafalgar Square, but according to city officials, it is temporary. It should indeed disappear this week. (They could at least let it the entire month!)

In France, for four days, from Sunday 15 June to Wednesday, June 18, the City Hall of Rouen replaced the flag of the city by the rainbow flag!

This is the first time that a municipality floated a rainbow flag to celebrate Gay Pride which was held Monday.
