A REPORT will be done into permanently displaying a rainbow pride flag in Albury's council chambers after the city's youth mayor argued for the move.
Eli Davern told councillors on Monday night that other cities, including Geelong and Shepparton, had taken similar action and it would be a sign of inclusion to Albury's LGBTQI community.
"It is important that council take this simple, inexpensive action to demonstrate inclusion in our diverse society and to encourage community awareness of the homophobia and transphobia still occurring in today's society," Mr Davern said.

He said the council had the opportunity to follow its previous "brave" action in flying the rainbow colours outside the council headquarters in 2017 in support of gay marriage.
Deputy mayor Amanda Cohn said Mr Davern's proposal was a "worthy idea" and added she would like a protocol around flying the pride flag for significant occasions such as the Sydney Mardi Gras.
As part of a motion adopting a flag protocol, a clause covered the collation of a report to be presented to the council on displaying the pride ensign.
