“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.

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.
