Pride FlagJune 21, 2019
The City of Martinez will be raising the Pride flag to officially recognize June as LGBTQ Pride month. The Flag was created in 1978 by San Francisco artist, Gilbert Baker. His concept of a rainbow of colors was chosen to represent diversity in what was, at the time, commonly known as the “gay” community.
The flag raising will be held at Martinez City Hall, 525 Henrietta Street, 6:00 p.m., Tuesday, June 25th and flown through Wednesday, June 26th in recognition of Pride Month.
