After the nation’s VE Day 75th Anniversary celebrations back in early May, it’s nearly time to do it all again!
The 75th anniversary of VJ Day (Victory over Japan) will be recognised on 15 August 2020, commemorating the thankful end of World War II. Whilst VE Day (Victory in Europe) signalled the end of the war in Europe back in May 1945, the Allied Armed Forces struggled on with fighting in the Far East Pacific Theatre. The global War truly ended on the 15th August 1945 with VJ Day marking this, the very day that Japan surrendered to the Allies.
In this most unusual of years we at The Flag Shop strongly believe that we should all pull together once again and mark the day with all the pride, patriotism and passion that it deserves! Events like the current Covid-19 pandemic, as horrific and catastrophic as they are, can really bring out the best traits in people. Just take a look down any typical British street on August 15th and you will no doubt see this - Various patriotic flags and bunting will sway with pride! Huge numbers of people will be displaying their Union Jack flags from their homes and streets and that’s just how it should be...VE Day was a great celebration and genuinely brought people together in the midst of a very trying period - Spirits were unquestionably raised and we need more of this!
Guess what? We’ve got everything you’ll need to do just that! Take a good look below at our wide range of VJ Day flags perfectly suited for the celebrations!
