National Accessibility Week & Flag
County of Essex – Flag Design
On Monday we attended 2 wonderful ceremonies raising our new Accessibility flag celebrating National AccessAbility Week – May 29 to June 4. The first ceremony was at the Essex County Civic Centre, and the next was at the Town of Kingsville Arena. Flags were raised all across the county at all the Municipal Offices.
We enjoyed designing the flag concepts with Deputy Clerk, Katherine Hebert. This final design was voted by all regional Accessibility Council members.
The 7 chevrons and gradient symbolize the connection and forward movement within the 7 municipalities in the area of accessibility standards, and advancements, and their efforts to continue to learn and grow these initiatives within our community. The wheelchair icon is a universal symbol for the disabled, inclusive of all disabilities. There is a hidden “E” (body rotated) and “C” (wheelchair) representing “Essex County”. Can you find it? The design was also created accessibility, and colourblind friendly.
Read about the newly designed flag and participate in Red Shirt Day On June 1, 2022 to show your support.
