Armed Forces Day flag raising at City Hall

The Greater London Authority will mark its commitment to supporting the Armed Forces by signing a Community Covenant on behalf of Londoners at a ceremony to be held outside City Hall.

The Community Covenant is a voluntary statement of mutual support between a civilian community and its local Armed Forces Community. It is intended to complement the Armed Forces Covenant, which outlines the moral obligation between the Nation, the Government and the Armed Forces, at the local level[1].

The Community Covenant will be signed on behalf of the GLA by Mayor of London Boris Johnson, Chair of the London Assembly Jennette Arnold AM and representatives of the Metropolitan Police Service, the London Fire Brigade and Transport for London.

Senior officers representing the Army, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and Reserves & Cadets will sign the Community Covenant on behalf of Londonís Armed Services.

The signing ceremony will be attended by serving personnel from all three services. Music will be provided by The Band of The Life Guards.
