Fly the Red Ensign on Merchant Navy Day 3 September 2017Fly the Red Ensign on Merchant Navy Day 3 September 2017
Added: 21 Aug 2017
Since 2000, Merchant Navy Day on 3rd September has honoured the brave men and women who kept our ’Island Nation’ afloat during both World Wars, and celebrated our dependence on modern day merchant seafarers who are responsible for 95% of the UK’s imports, including much of the food we eat, most of the fuel we burn and virtually all the products and goods we take for granted!

This year Seafarers UK is campaigning for the Red Ensign - the UK Merchant Navy’s official flag - to be flown on Sunday 3rd September on harbour offices, civic buildings and landmark flagpoles across the UK. Parish, community, town, city, district and borough councils are all invited to take part, along with higher-tier ports, local authorities and governments.

There are many locations where the Red Ensign can be freely flown ashore - civic centres, town halls, public libraries, village greens, churches, sports venues, historic buildings, tourist attractions, ports, etc. All participating organisations will be added to a prestigious ’Roll of Honour’ and promoted via social media.

Last year hundreds of local flag-hoisting ceremonies were organised, involving VIPs, civic dignitaries, Merchant Navy veterans, naval cadets, etc. At some locations a message of support from HRH The Earl of Wessex was read out ’to remember the sacrifices, salute the courage and support the future of the often unsung personnel of our Merchant Navy.’
