LGBTQ traffic signals, featuring same-sex couples holding hands and gay and transgender symbols, put up in June in the Trafalgar Square area for London Pride are here to stay.

“They were never meant to be permanent but we have no current plans to take them down and they are staying for the foreseeable future,” a Transport for London spokesman told The Sun. There are around 50 of the new traffic lights in total.

“One of the greatest things about this city is our differences and every Londoner should be proud of who they are,” London Mayor Sadiq Khan said when the lights were first introduced.

Vienna started the trend in May of last year when they hosted the Eurovision song contest.

Munich followed suit two months later, installing their own LGBTQ themed lights for their Pride festival. They brought them back for this year’s festival as well.
