Nottingham City Council is to paint four zebra-crossing-style rainbow flags on the surface of the road in which this year’s Nottinghamshire Pride Parade will finish. 


Speaking to NottinghamshireLive, the Labour leader of the council, Councillor David Mellen, said: “A rainbow road is a really visible way of showing our commitment to supporting the LGBT+ community, and I’m looking forward to seeing it realised. 

“The newly pedestrianised Broad Street provides the perfect setting. Local people have told us they want to see more street art in the area to help create a sense of place and identity - so it’s really exciting to see the rainbow road in situ to celebrate Pride.”


Nottinghamshire Pride takes place on Saturday 27 July.
