Deputy Mayor Kali Clark will lead the community in raising the Progress Pride Flag at City Hall. "It's important that every resident in our community knows they are safe, accepted, and supported. Raising the Progress Pride Flag at City Hall is an action that restates our commitment to residents – that we are an inclusive community, that we welcome everybody," says Deputy Mayor Kali Clark.

The Progress Pride Flag, designed in 2018 by Danial Quasar, is an evolution of the classic six-colored Rainbow Pride Flag. Quasar added a five-colored chevron to the Rainbow Pride Flag to place a greater emphasis on “inclusion and progression.” The chevron includes the colors black and brown to represent marginalized LGBTQ+ communities of color, along with the colors pink, light blue, and white, which are used on the Transgender Pride Flag.
