In celebration of Pride weekend, the Space Needle is flying the Pride flag, a tradition upheld for more than a decade.

Team Members and community members came together to raise the Progress Pride Flag today to support the trans, non-binary, people of color, Black, and Indigenous LGBTQ+ community. The Progress Pride flag, which was first flown on top of the tower in 2020, will remain up through Sunday.

“The parades may be virtual this year, but the love and pride are real,” said Karen Olson, Chief Operating Officer of the Space Needle. “Our community is coming out of an incredibly hard year due to the pandemic. But as always, we’re coming out stronger. We have been honored to raise the Pride Flag over Seattle for more than a decade. This year, as with last year, we raise the Progress Pride Flag to support our trans, non-binary, people of color, Black, and Indigenous LGBTQ+ community. We raise the flag with our Team Members and for our community. If you’re in Seattle this weekend, look up! This flag is for you.”
