The council has been working with the Wandsworth LGBTQ+ Forum to mark Pride – celebrating equality, diversity and the contribution of the LGBTQ+ community.
Leader of the council Ravi Govindia received a gift of a rainbow flag from Forum chairman David Robson, which was hoisted on the town hall flagpole on Friday and will fly all weekend.
Mr Robson said: “This is the first year that we’ve worked together to fly the flag and I hope it marks the start of a stronger relationship between the Forum and the council. It shows a good commitment to the principles of Pride and a positive message of celebration.”
Councillor Govindia said: “I was delighted to accept the flag this morning and celebrating our relationship with the Forum, which I’m confident will go from strength to strength.”
