Mid and East Antrim to Fly the Flag in support of Armed Forces Day

1 Mins read

Mid and East Antrim Borough Council is to Fly the Flag in support of Armed Forces Day.

The Armed Forces Day flag will fly at three sites in the Borough throughout this week, with Council joining hundreds of local authorities and organisations throughout the UK taking part in the campaign.

The local locations are Memorial Park in Ballymena, Castle Green in Carrickfergus and Smiley Buildings in Larne, with the flags flying until Armed Forces Day this Saturday (24 June).
Mayor of Mid and East Antrim, Councillor Paul Reid, said: “Mid and East Antrim has a long and proud connection with our Armed Forces.

“By supporting the Fly the Flag campaign, we are demonstrating our appreciation for our brave service personnel, past and present, and their resilience and courage.
“This is an acknowledgement of the vital work they do in ensuring our safety and protecting us from harm at home and abroad.”

The move was agreed by Elected Members at a meeting of Full Council earlier this month, following a request from the Ministry of Defence.

Mid and East Antrim Borough Council participated in the Fly the Flag campaign in 2015 and 2016, with the regional Armed Forces Day event hosted in the Borough two years ago.
Armed Forces Day takes place on Saturday 24 June.
