Local authorities across the United Kingdom, Channel Islands and Isle of Man will be raising specially commissioned Armed Forces Day Flags in unison on Monday 25 June in a universal display of support, honouring Britain’s Armed Forces, past, present and future.

In Chelmsford, the flag will be raised on Chelmsford City Council’s flag pole at the Civic Centre. The service will begin on Monday 25 June at 10am at the War Memorial on Duke Street, Chelmsford. The Mayor will say a few words and a prayer will be read, following which the flag will be raised and will remain for a week in honour of our country’s armed forces.

The Mayor of Chelmsford, Councillor Yvonne Spence and Councillors from Chelmsford City Council hope to be joined by representatives from BLESMA (British Limbless Ex Service Men’s Association), KEGS CCF (King Edward Grammar School’s Combined Cadet Force), the Royal Naval Association and the Royal British Legion.

The flag will fly until Monday 2 July.
