Two California school districts ban LGBTQ+ flags
By Richard Brown // Sep 19, 2023

The display of Pride flags in public places has sparked debates around inclusion, civil rights and religious beliefs. Just recently, two school boards in California made headlines by voting to implement policies that restrict the display of flags on school grounds to only those representing the state and the nation.

In both the Sunol Glen School District and the Temecula Valley Unified School District, a newly adopted policy bans the display of all flags, including the rainbow flag, a symbol of the LGBTQ+ movement. The only flags allowed for display are the flags of California and the United States.

Sunol is part of northern California's Bay Area and has a population of under 1,000 while Temecula is in southern California.

These decisions were reached during separate board meetings held on Sept. 12 by each district.

In Sunol, the resolution passed with a 2-1 vote, after passionate arguments were presented by community members both in favor of and against the policy during the meeting. (Related: City council in Michigan BANS LGBT flags from public property – take note, White House.)

According to local reports, the resolution was prompted by parental requests to fly various flags on school property, with some questioning why flags representing the LGBTQ+ agenda were permitted while those representing Christian and pro-gun views were discouraged.

The resolution cites the California Government Code, stating that neither federal nor state law mandates elementary school districts to display any flags other than those of the U.S. and California. It asserts that the Sunol Glen Unified School District seeks to adhere strictly to the flags required by law.

In Temecula, the board established protocols a month ago to inform parents about any gender-related concerns their children may have. While the flag policy applies district-wide, there may be exceptions for displaying other flags if approved by the superintendent.

LGBTQ+ flags a rich source of controversy

Across the United States and Canada, LGBTQ+ flags have sparked controversy, with some citizens expressing support for their removal from schools. These controversies have extended to the Biden administration, which displayed an LGBTQ+ flag between two American flags at the White House.

Conservatives have also noted incidents where patriotic symbols have faced hostility, such as a recent case in a Colorado school where a 12-year-old student was briefly removed from class over a "Don't Tread on Me" patch on his backpack. The school faced conservative backlash, and the student was allowed to keep the patch without further issues.

As another academic year begins, school boards nationwide are discussing the banning of LGBTQ+ Pride flags. In recent years, flag restrictions have been proposed to avoid favoring one group over another, limiting flag displays to government and military flags, and effectively banning Pride flags. These flag restrictions have emerged alongside bans on LGBTQ+ topics in curricula in several states, constituting part of a broader push against inclusion and diversity.

In June, a Detroit-area community banned LGBTQ+ flags from publicly owned poles, raising questions about discrimination, religion and the city’s reputation for welcoming newcomers.

"You guys are welcome," council member Nayeem Choudhury said. "(But) why do you have to have the flag shown on government property to be represented? You're already represented. We already know who you are."

The Pride flag clashes with the belief of the all-Muslim council. Businesses and residents, however, are not prohibited from displaying a Pride flag on their property.
