Merchant Navy Day

Our annual Fly The Red Ensign campaign takes place every year on Merchant Navy Day, 3 September, to honour and remember the sacrifices of the, often forgotten and invisible, but very hard-working, UK Merchant Navy seafarers.

Our Fly the Red Ensign on Merchant Navy Day campaign was started in 2015 to address ‘sea blindness’ that appeared to afflict a huge proportion of the population, with widespread public ignorance about the UK’s ongoing dependence on merchant seafarers who are responsible for shipping over 95% of the UK’s trade.
