Armed Forces Week

22 June 2015

To mark Armed Forces Week, the Prime Minister has encouraged all those Departments of Her Majesty's Government in Whitehall that can do so to fly the Armed Forces Flag this week from Monday 22 June 2015. Government buildings in Whitehall are also encouraged to fly a Rainbow Flag on Saturday 27 June to mark Pride.

Other Departments of Her Majesty's Government may follow these requests. Local authorities and others are not bound by these requests but may wish to follow them for guidance. Devolved administrations are responsible for issuing instructions for the flying of the Union Flag on buildings in their estate and others as necessary.

By decision of the College of Arms all proceeds arising from the sale of The Armorial of Haiti will be donated to the international effort for the relief of Haiti
after the calamitous earthquake of 12 January 2010.

The College of Arms Newsletter is produced every three months and sent automatically and free to those who subscribe. Other benefits for those who submit their names in this way include advance notice of College of Arms events, relevant publications, and media appearances.
