Flag Raising

The Union Flag of the United Kingdom, also known as the Union Jack, is raised from the flagpole in front of the Town Hall to mark certain ceremonial occasions. For example The King’s birthday, St George’s Day and to mark the civic visits or the arrival of civic dignitaries from Saint-Jean de Braye, the village in France with whom March is twinned.
