Come and see history being made. Ascension Island’s flag will be raised for the very first time on Saturday 11 May on the Flag Pole outside the AIG Administration Building.

The event will precede the Ascension Day Fair and will start at 1015am. A few long-serving members of the Island's community will have the honour to raise the flag in a short and historic ceremony.

The British Government will raise the Ascension Flag on 13 May over the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on Whitehall, and again at the Queen’s Birthday Parade on 8 June.

All members of the public are welcome to attend. Saturday 11 May, 1015am, Administration Building.
