A floral representation of the Pride flag – the iconic symbol for the LGBT+ community – has been officially unveiled on the Leeds Pride parade route through Leeds city centre.

The colourful ‘flower-towers’ form part of a number of ways the city is celebrating in the lead up to this year’s Leeds Pride on August 5. Passers-by and visitors to the busy Penny Pocket Park, opposite Leeds Minster, will now be able to enjoy the display designed by Leeds City Council’s parks and countryside team.

Coun Mohammed Rafique said: “The display looks fantastic and marks the beginning of what I’m sure will be an exciting event.”
