UPDATED: The Rainbow Flag could be on display at "relevant public facilities" in the Wangaratta Council area if a notice of motion to be debated by council on Tuesday night is adopted.
Cr David Fuller has submitted the notice of motion in response to the Victorian Pride Lobby's call on all candidates at last year's council elections to back five pledges to support the LGBTIQA+ community.
He told The Border Mail: "If the motion passes, I'm hoping to see the group involved in a community conversation about what is the most appropriate way to acknowledge our LGBTIQA+ community members.
"This may be a flag on pole, a decal on window or acknowledgement of significant days with an overlay on our social media channels.
"It's important that we consider the number of buildings, the purpose of the building and the nature of community and organisation interaction.
"All while being mindful of limited resources to achieve all elements of the pledge."
Cr Fuller was successful in being re-elected last year after initially winning a spot on council in 2016.
He also served a stint as deputy mayor.
He was one of 29 openly LGBTQI candidates elected, according to the Star Observer website.
"It was time that our councils reflect the diverse communities they serve, and one way we can achieve this is by electing more LGBTQI and more young councillors across the state," he told the website.
His notice of motion seeks ongoing support for the Rainbow Ball, including financial backing, and initiate a diversity and inclusivity reference group or advisory committee with applicable terms of reference.
The reference group would be responsible for preparing the case for the Rainbow Flag to be displayed at public facilities and also promoted on social media platforms, particularly on significant days.
