"I think it's urgent that we at the City of Boston codify a formal policy to use our flagpoles in ways that express our City's values and intended messages, as the Supreme Court decision allows us to do," said Councilor Kenzie Bok. "I'm proud to be working with President Flynn and Councilor Louijeune in hopes that our Council can put that law on the books next week."
"The flags that we raise at City Hall Plaza should reflect and celebrate our City's values, and this ordinance lays out a formal process that will allow us to do that," said City Council President Ed Flynn. "I want to thank Councilors Bok and Louijeune for co-sponsoring this important ordinance with me. I look forward to working with everyone on its swift passage."
"We have a rich city of diverse people and ethnic backgrounds that we want to celebrate while we are doing the work to uplift communities," said Councilor Ruthzee Louijeune. "This flag-raising ordinance clarifies and codifies the process for flag-raisings and the messages that we as a city want to convey each time a ceremonial flag is raised."
