Armed Forces Day: Flying the Flag

On a visit to the troops in Afghanistan earlier this week, Gordon Brown unfurled for the first time the special flag which will be used to celebrate Armed Forces Day in June this year.

The new annual Armed Forces Day is an opportunity for the nation to show our support for the men and women of our Armed Forces and the Government is urging councils and organisations across the country to fly the flag in honour of all Britain's servicemen and women past and present.

To find out about the events already planned in your area, visit the Armed Forces Day website.
