Merchant Navy Day


Today, Tuesday 3 September is Merchant Navy Day and Cumbria County Council will show their support by flying the Red Ensign flag on its flag poles at Kendal’s County Hall, The Courts and Cumbria House in Carlisle. Merchant Navy Day aims to raise awareness of the UK’s ongoing dependence on Merchant Navy seafarers.

The County Council is supporting the nationwide call from the Seafarers UK charity and the Merchant Navy Association for the UK Merchant Navy’s official flag to be flown on public buildings and landmarks.

The charity’s president, HRH The Earl of Wessex, has endorsed the campaign, saying: 

“On this Merchant Navy Day, I very much hope you will support the campaign by Seafarers UK to remember the sacrifices, salute the courage and support the future of the often unsung personnel of our Merchant Navy. Too often they are the forgotten or invisible service, by raising the Red Ensign you will ensure that at least on this day they are remembered. Your act will mean so much to their families and to the retired, but most especially to those at sea.”

Councillor Christine Bowditch, Chairman of Cumbria County Council said: 

“Merchant Navy Day is a great way to show our support for the servicemen and women who kept our 'Island Nation' afloat during both World Wars. It’s a wonderful opportunity for the whole nation to show its support and appreciation. Cumbria County Council is proud to be flying the flag.”
