Local anti-bullying advocate Trevor Henson, hoisted a pink flag at the Collingwood Public Library for the second time this year with help from Mayor Brian Saunderson.
May 4 is United Nations anti-bullying day, an occasion recognized by 25 countries in the world.
Its origins go back to 2007 when two Canadians who purchased 50 pink shirts to wear to school after a fellow student was bullied for wearing a pink shirt on the first day of school.
In Canada, anti-bullying day is celebrated in February. However, in 2012, the United Nations declared May 4 an international anti-bullying day.
Henson and Saunderson raised the pink flag at the library in February and today to mark both occasions.
