Postsecondary institutions raise flags to recognize Pride, Indigenous History month


Postsecondary institutions across Canada are raising flags in recognition of Pride month. The University of Waterloo has raised the Two-Spirit Pride flag and Intersex-Inclusive Progressive flag for the month of June. Georgian College has raised flags and installed crosswalk paintings on all of its campuses. Red River College Polytechnic has raised three flags to mark the start of National Indigenous History Month and Pride Month: the Treaty One flag, the Red River Métis flag, and a new inclusive Pride flag. The pride flag was designed in consultation with the polytechnic’s Knowledge Keepers’ Council, Students’ Association, and Gender and Sexual Identities working group and unveiled last year. Pride flags were also raised on Red Deer Polytechnic’s campus and outside of Keyano College.
