Costs to restrict flags on WA state ferries introduced after Pride red flags flown last June

by Shaun Knittel – SGN Relate Editor State Rep. Brad Klippert introduced a bill this week in Olympia that, if passed by the legislature, would mean that no other flag besides the Stars and Stripes, the Wa state flag and maritime transmission flags will fly over condition ferries. The Kennewick Republican told the Tri-City Herald on Wednesday, ‘I have no problem with the Seahawks flag. People across all policy beliefs support our Seahawks, yet that is not true for Gay satisfaction flags. ‘ Klippert’s bill might end the state ferry system’s practice of occasionally flying other flags, such as the 12th flag and, because Klippert referenced, the LGBTQ rainbow-colored flag symbolizing Gay pride. Last June, while the U. S. Supreme Court mulled over whether or not relationship equality was a civil right in the U. S., the rainbow pride flag was flown on the 2 ferries serving Seattle to Bainbridge Island and Seattle to Bremerton.
