The One World Living Together flag was raised by some of Guelph’s younger residents on May 30.

“The raising of the One World Living Together flag reflects the core objectives of unity and peace, promoted by the Guelph & District Multicultural Festival, as well as our united effort to achieve these common goals,” said Carmela Nini, the organizer of this year’s ceremony.

The crowd was greeted by Guelph’s mayor Cam Guthrie and Guelph’s chief of police Jeffrey DeRuyter.
