It took Copenhagen Pride less than 24 hours to crowdfund 30,000 DKK for a new flagpole meant to celebrate diversity at the Rainbow Square (Regnbuepladsen) in Copenhagen.
On 4 April 2017 Copenhagen Pride initiated a fundraising campaign asking the public for help to crowdfund 30,000 DKK for a new flagpole at the Rainbow Square in Copenhagen that will wave the rainbow flag year round celebrating diversity in Copenhagen. The target was set to 30,000 DKK and less than 24 hours after the campaign was launched they had reached the set target.
”Copenhagen Pride believes that Copenhagen deserves a permanent symbol of diversity in the public space thus we’ve initiated the fundraising campaign to be able to raise the rainbow flag at the Rainbow Square as soon as possible”, Copenhagen Pride stated and continued:
”The City of Copenhagen has given us the permit for the new flag pole and informed us that they will maintain it if we succeed in raising 30,000 DKK for the flag and flagpole”.
The new flagpole will be installed at the Rainbow Square in Copenhagen just across the City Hall Square.
