Rainbow Flags Have Taken Over The Rockefeller Center In Celebration Of Pride

The Pride Parade may not be taking place in NYC today, but people can still visit the handful of landmarks that are lighting up and showing support—like the Rockefeller Center, which now has over 100 Pride flags on display in their plaza.

The Rockefeller Center Plaza has 192 flagpoles surrounding their rink area, most of which now feature the vibrant rainbow Pride flag. Last year was the first time the Rockefeller Center had decided to dress 109 of those flagpoles with the Pride flag in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, and they’ve raised the flag again this year in honor of 50 years of NYC Pride celebrations (the first one taking place the year after the 1969 riots).

New Yorkers can head over to the plaza to see the colorful display for themselves, and also catch a glimpse of Prometheus wearing his larger-than-life mask!
