Rainbow Crosswalk

Ashcroft is proud to be an inclusive community that embraces the diversity of the people that makes up its citizens.  In 2018, Village Council resolved unanimously to install a Rainbow Crosswalk to celebrate the community's diverse nature.  Teck Highland Valley Copper, a mine located east of Ashcroft, provided the funding to create this crosswalk.  The crosswalk is located across Railway avenue, adjacent to the Post Office.

The Rainbow Flag

The Rainbow flag means much more than sexuality, in fact, each colour in the rainbow flag has a meaning:

  • Pink:  Sexuality
  • Red:  Life
  • Yellow:  Sunlight
  • Green:  Nature
  • Turquoise:  Art
  • Indigo:  Serenity
  • Violet:  Spirit
