A newly-designed flag will be hoisted at the Essex County Civic Centre on Monday, May 30th, to celebrate National AccessAbility Week.

The flag was designed by Kristine Verbeek and selected above other designs by accessibility committee members from each local municipality and the County. It features the word “Accessibility” beneath a stylized figure in a wheelchair facing the right side of the flag, with a series of seven chevrons pointing in the same direction.

“These chevrons symbolize the seven local County municipalities moving forward with accessibility together, in the right direction, suggesting momentum, progress and action,” said ECAAC Chair Christine Easterbrook. “It is the committee’s hope that raising this flag will help to raise awareness about the importance of inclusivity and ongoing accessibility issues and activities in the County of Essex.”

The flag raising at the Civic Centre is scheduled for 10am on Monday, May 30th.
