Iceland has something to say about Vice President Mike Pence’s infamously anti-LGBTQ beliefs.

Pence arrived at Höfði house in Reykjavík for a meeting with Icelandic President Guðni Jóhannesson on Thursday–and was greeted with a host of Pride flags planted near the surrounding buildings.

“We just felt the need to celebrate diversity today and wanted to show that by flying the flags,” a company executive of Advania, a firm that owns one of the buildings, told Iceland Monitor.

It didn’t stop there: Jóhannesson was seen wearing a rainbow bracelet during his photo op with Pence.

Iceland’s first lady, Eliza Reid, sported a similar bracelet during the vice president’s visit.
