Starbucks raised the gay flag above their Seattle headquarters in honor of National LGBT Pride month.

The flag will remain through the weekend as the city celebrates Seattle Pride.


“Today a 38-feet wide by 19-feet tall rainbow flag was raised on top of Starbucks headquarters and will remain through this weekend’s Seattle Pride Parade,” Starbucks said in a press release June 23. “Given our public stance on diversity and inclusion of all people, particularly on this issue, it makes sense to raise the flag in celebration. Being open, inclusive and forward-thinking is at the core of what Starbucks is about.”
