Young and old stood shoulder to shoulder at a flag raising ceremony to support Armed Forces Day.
Pupils from several schools joined members of the armed forces, cadets and the public at the event outside Blackburn Town Hall.
A minute’s silence was held before the Armed Forces Day flag was raised in glorious sunshine.
