Fly the Red Ensign is an annual campaign, proudly run by The Seafarers’ Charity, to honour the brave men and women who kept the UK afloat during both World Wars and celebrate our dependence on modern-day merchant seafarers who are responsible for more than 90% of the UK’s imports. The COVID-19 pandemic had a tragic impact on Merchant Navy communities, and many continue to need urgent support. This Merchant Navy Day, 3rd of September, please Fly the Red Ensign to remember the sacrifices of the often forgotten and invisible Merchant Navy community and help us raise vital funds to help respond to the increased need for support.
All funds raised will go towards the Merchant Navy Fund, which is administered by The Seafarers’ Charity and supported by the MNWB.
