The New Plan

Update (September 2022) 

After careful consideration alongside the City of Stratford’s Public Works Dept, Stratford-Perth Pride and Sirkel Foods have decided it is best to wait until Spring 2023 to remove and replace Stratford’s Rainbow Crosswalk.

This will ensure the road paint has enough warm weather to fully adhere to the asphalt and provide a longer lifespan of the new crosswalk.

Stratford-Perth Pride and Sirkel Foods are committed to replacing the crosswalk as soon as possible and will be in continuous communication with the City to determine an exact spring date.


The new design will continue to honour the representation of the progress flag. It will include the colours of the six-stripe Pride flag (red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple), a pink, and light blue stripe representing the trans community, and a black and brown stripe representing queer people of colour.

White road paint will be placed at each end as well as the sides of the crosswalk for visual safety.
