On Merchant Navy Day, 3 September, the Red Ensign will be flown ashore to raise awareness of our dependence as an island nation on our past, present and future Merchant Navy seafarers.

The Red Ensign will be flown in over 600 UK locations such as civic centres, town halls, churches and tourist attractions to celebrate our ‘Island Nation’. Merchant seafarers are responsible for 95% of the UK’s imports.

Money raised by the flags flown on Sunday is used to support seafarers and their families in times of need.

Coltraco are proud to support the Merchant Navy.
