Fly a flag over Charlestown to mark a special occasion.
17th November 2023
Charles Rashleigh’s Birthday. Flag flying today, and all this weekend at the Gun Battery to celebrate the 276th Birthday of Charlestown’s Founder.
We only fly a flag from the Gun Battery, high over Charlestown, on a few special days in the year. Why not add to it with this unique way to mark your special occasion. Be it a gift for a birthday or to remember a loved one, we’ll raise a flag and fly it all day and also display the details of the occasion on our website and on a board beside the road where the coast path leads off to the Battery.
In order to secure your flag fly day, we ask that you make a donation to the funds of the Charlestown History Group so that we can continue to protect Charlestown’s history. You will receive full details of how to donate once you have selected your date and entered your details in the flag booking calendar below.
