Better days are coming.
As the UK went into lockdown in March 2020, following the trend set by Italy and Spain, thousands of hand-painted rainbows started to appear in windows across the country. Children, who could no longer go to school because of social distancing and quarantine measures, were encouraged to paint rainbows and hang them in their windows, spreading hope and positivity to passersby.
The rainbow often represents diversity and inclusiveness, and has been used as the flag for LGBTQIA pride since the 1970s. For thousands of years, it’s been a symbol of hope. There’s even one in the story of Noah’s Ark. This particular rainbow, an original watercolour by Kent-based artist Bethany Ward, is a reminder that –whatever you’re going through– better days are coming.
