More than 1,000 military personnel will march through Aberdeen this weekend to mark Armed Forces Day.
Crowds are expected to line Union Street on Saturday morning to watch the parade of serving, veteran and cadet crews, pipe bands and vintage vehicles.
As it passes the Town House, Lord Provost Barney Crockett will take a salute in his role as Lord-Lieutenant.
He said: “Aberdeen always embraces this opportunity to say thank you to personnel for their service to the country by turning out in large numbers to watch the parade.
“It’s heart-warming to see spectators’ young and old pay tribute to the British Armed Forces community for their hard work, dedication and efforts to and keep us safe in the UK and across the globe.
“The pipe bands, marching personnel and military vehicles will fill the length of Union Street, creating quite a moving spectacle.”
Adding to the atmosphere, more than 2,000 free flags will be handed to members of the public by the 2nd Hilton Rainbows.
One side of the flag was designed by 11-year-old competition winner Maya Maclean from Gilcomstoun Primary.
A number of city centre roads will be closed between 9am and 1pm on Saturday to allow for the parade. For full details, visit pressandjournal.co.uk.
