 The entry markers at either end of Toronto's Church Wellesley Village welcomes visitors into this historic neighbourhood.

As you stroll down the tree-lined streets of Toronto's Church Wellesley Street Village you are now welcomed at either end by a colourful entry icon that celebrates the area's diversity and recognizes the village as the heart of Toronto's gay community. Standing smartly at 21 feet high, the markers feature a hand-spun stainless steel ball crowning the top of what resembles a ship's mast. The mast in turn supports sail-like cutouts of colour paying homage to the iconic rainbow flag. 

Designed by local architect Claudio Santon, the pair of icons were commissioned by the Village BIA and the City of Toronto. Working with Alpeza Construction, Great Lakes Scenic Studios was brought aboard as the fabricator to build and install the icons. Made with stainless steel and coloured with powder-coat, the icons promise to be a vibrant salute to all those who visit the Village for many years to come.
