22 June
WL Armed Forces Day 2022

The Armed Forces Day flag was raised at West Lothian Civic Centre at 10am on Monday 20 June, and will remain in place until Monday 27 June in honour of our country's armed forces.

A special ceremony was held to mark the occasion, hosted by Provost Cathy Muldoon, with invited guests including Ms Moira Niven MBE, Lord-Lieutenant, West Lothian Councillors and representatives from the military, Livingston Branch of Royal British Legion Scotland, West Lothian Armed Forces Day Organising Committee, and members of the public.

Cadet Colour Sergeant Morgan Henig had the honour of raising the flag, with music from members of West Lothian Schools Pipe Band.

Provost Muldoon said: I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the flag raising ceremony.  Flying the Armed Forces Day Flag is a way to show our support for the men and women and their families who make up the Armed Forces. This week of recognition provides us an ideal opportunity to thank them for their commitment and bravery in the past, present and in the years to come."
