Councils across the UK will be flying a Red Ensign on Merchant Navy Day

August 14, 2018

The Right Worshipful Lord Mayor of Westminster, Councillor Lindsey Hall, is supporting Seafarers UK’s ‘Fly the Red Ensign for Merchant Navy Day’ campaign.

The Lord Mayor said the Council was proud to support a day which honours the bravery of men and women from both World Wars through to today: ‘We are looking forward to raising awareness by flying the Red Ensign on 3rd September to recognise all Merchant Navy seafarers, whether it be those we have lost through incredible sacrifice or those currently working hard to service the UK.’

Westminster is one of more than 700 councils across the UK that will be hoisting a Red Ensign on 3rd September, to help raise awareness of our island nation’s ongoing dependence on Merchant Navy seafarers.
