No LGBTQ Flag on Madrid’s Town Hall This Year After the Controversial Supreme Court Ban in Spain

This year Madrid’s Town Hall will not display the rainbow-coloured LGBTQ flag after the Supreme Court’s controversial ban.

THE Supreme Court has banned hanging this flag because they intended to preserve institutional neutrality and therefore any ‘unofficial’ flags outside public buildings have been banned.

This has been a tough and controversial decision for the LGBTQ community to observe, as they are already a marginalised group in society.

Madrid will comply with the ban however there is still a municipal Pride campaign which includes banners in the streets and illuminated lights throughout the week.

Nevertheless, the Town Hall in Barcelona has defied this Supreme Court ruling and will hang the LGBTQ flag with pride.
