LGBT+ Campus Flag Raising
  • Outside the Rolle Marquee

Save event

The Rainbow Flag Raising Ceremony hosted by the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Team at the University of Plymouth will be the first official event to mark the start of LGBT+ History Month. This will take place at the flag pole outside the Rolle Marquee at 10:30 am. 

The rainbow flag originated in San Francisco in 1978 and was designed by artist Gilbert Baker for the Californian city's Gay and Lesbian Freedom Day Parade. Since then it has become a worldwide emblem of pride and LGBT+ friendly areas. The red in the flag symbolises life, while orange signifies healing, yellow is for sunlight, green represents nature, blue stands for harmony and violet signifies spirit.

The University of Plymouth is proud to show support for its many LGBT+ staff, students and visitors.
