Navy facility to raise pride flag
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
