March for Jesus flag at City Hall denied by Windsor council

A March for Jesus flag will not fly at Windsor City Hall this summer, after council voted down the request Monday night.windsor-city-hall-mayoral-debate

A group representing different churches went to city council last night to ask permission to fly the flag.

The flag is white with a red cross on a blue rectangle in one corner.

Council turned down the request, stating the flag violates the city’s policy, which prohibits “flags deemed to be offensive in nature or those supporting discrimination, prejudice, political or religious movements.”

The group organizing the “March for Jesus” in August wanted to fly the flag in the days leading up to the event.
