Navy fa­cil­ity to raise pride flag

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND -

To mark the be­gin­ning of Pride Week in P.E.I., Cana­dian Armed Forces/Royal Cana­dian Navy HMCS Queen Char­lotte will host a flag-rais­ing cer­e­mony at their fa­cil­i­ties in Char­lot­te­town.

Colours, as it’s known, is a tra­di­tional naval cer­e­mony that takes place ev­ery day at 8 a.m. to raise the flags of the day, nor­mally the naval en­sign and na­tional flag.

Spe­cial cir­cum­stances and events some­times see an ex­cep­tion made to fly an al­ter­nate flag at mil­i­tary bases and fa­cil­i­ties.

HMCS Queen Char­lotte will con­tinue its tra­di­tion of rais­ing the pride flag in show of sup­port and sol­i­dar­ity with the pride or­ga­ni­za­tion and the LGBTQ com­mu­nity.

The cer­e­mony will com­mence at 8 a.m. on July 23
