Genuine Question about Rainbow Flag

Genuine Question about Rainbow Flag

My local Cafe has a permanent rainbow flag over the sales counter . Out of curiosity I asked them in an email the reason for the flag but got no response of yet .

What about all the different nationalities currently living in Ireland . Should all our Shops and Buildings put up

Letters : Covid Passes not necessary , Study shows most vaccinated are protected from serious illness
