Pride Flag Raising Ceremony at City Hall Courtyard in Atlantic City
June 28, 2021 – 1:30PM to 2:30PM
Mayor Small, members of the Small Administration, and advocates of Atlantic City’s LGBTQ+ community will hold the City’s inaugural flag-raising ceremony with the raising of the Progress Pride Flag. While retaining the common six-stripe rainbow design as a base, the “Progress” variation adds a chevron that features black, brown, light blue, pink, and white stripes to bring marginalized people of color, trans individuals, and those living with HIV/AIDS and those who have been lost to the forefront.
The arrow points to the right to show forward movement, while the left edge shows that progress still needs to be made. The event is in celebration of Pride Month, observed internationally in June to commemorate the 1969 Stonewall Inn Riot (NYC) led by Black and Brown Transgenders and others for LGBTQ+ civil rights.
City Hall Courtyard: 1301 Bacharach Boulevard, Atlantic City, NJ 08401
