Rainbow pride lions are displayed in support of LGBTI people at the HSBC Headquarters in Central Hong Kong. Their display has caused controversy and prompted a petition for their removal as well as threats by customers to close their accounts. <br />
The lions are replicas in rainbow colours of Stephen and Stitt, the bank’s iconic lions, in front of its main building.<br />
The statues, designed by local LGBT artist Michael Lam,represent pride and unity in diversity, with Stephen painted in stripes (pictured) and Stitt in circles. Throughout the bank’s history, the lions have stood for courage and prosperity.#HSBCPride .<br />
