Merchant Navy Day Flag Raising Ceremony 2020

Today we had a small ceremony to raise the Red Ensign at the front of the Civic Centre to mark Merchant Navy Day with the Right Worshipful Mayor of Southampton, her Chaplain and some key members of the Merchant Navy and Armed Forces community present. You can watch the highlights of the flag raising ceremony here.

3rd September is ‘Merchant Navy Day’, the day we honour the brave men and women who kept our island nation afloat during both world wars, and even during peacetime continue to face the more routine perils of violent storms and seas to keep the UK supplied with food, fuel, medicines and other essential goods.
