LGBT+ community flag to fly at Castle House, Newark to celebrate the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, Interphobia and Biphobia (Idahobit)




A rainbow-coloured flag will fly at Castle House, Newark, on Friday to celebrate the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, Interphobia and Biphobia (Idahobit).

The day is dedicated to tackling discrimination against the LGBT+ community, and Newark and Sherwood District Council has pledged to take part.

The colours of the LGBT+ flag all carry a special meaning. Red means life, orange means healing, yellow means sunshine, green means nature, blue means harmony and purple means spirit.
