A flag has been raised at Scottish Borders Council HQ in support of Armed Forces Week.
Councils and organisations across the UK are raising the flag in recognition of the role played by servicemen and women past and present.
“The Scottish Borders has a long and proud connection with our armed forces and the annual raising of the flag is an important symbol of our appreciation for everything that our brave servicemen and women have done and continue to do to keep us all safe.
“Given the recent events in Manchester and London, it is particularly important that we stand in solidarity with them this year and acknowledge the vital work they do every day to protect and defend us from harm.”
