Pride Flag

The Indigenous, Equity and Human Rights Division is pleased to announce that we have a new OCDSB Pride flag that will be flown outside at all schools and administrative buildings, replacing the standard OCDSB flag to recognize Pride Month for the month of June each year (June 1 - June 30 inclusive). 

 

The Progress Pride Flag design was created by Daniel Quasar in 2018.  The Progress Pride Flag features black and brown stripes to represent people of colour, and baby blue, pink and white to include the trans flag in its design. 

Background

June is recognized internationally as Pride Month to honour the struggles and celebrate 2SLGBTQ+ cultures, identities and communities. By flying the OCDSB Pride Flag, OCDSB is reaffirming its values and commitment to creating and sustaining a culture of caring where 2SLGBTQ+ students, families and staff matter and are welcome, seen and represented at OCDSB. It is an important statement. Recognizing and embedding a culture of caring for 2SLGBTQ+ students, families and staff members does not end with simply flying the OCDSB Pride Flag during Pride Month.
