Flag Day was celebrated by Interior Secretary Deb Haaland hoisting the “Progress Pride” flag above the building in Washington, DC.
Haagland wrote on social media, “Today we celebrate love.” “For the first time ever, the Progress Pride Flag is raised over Interior. Happy Pride!”
The Progress Pride flag is the revised gay pride rainbow flag, the colors black and brown represent gay, lesbian, transgender, and intersex people of color, as well as the colors of the pink and baby blue transgender flag.
Haaland, herself, went to the roof hoisting the flag above the Interior headquarters.
It is unclear if Haaland intentionally featured the Progress Pride Flag on Flag Day, a day set to honor the American flag.
Biden issued a proclamation Friday, ordering the American flag to be flown on all government buildings on June 14.
“Since the adoption of the Stars and Stripes, Americans — and people around the world — have continuously looked to our flag as a symbol of unity and liberty,” he wrote in his proclamation.
