A flag flew on Maidenhead Town Hall on Monday to mark the sixth annual Armed Forces Day.
The Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead Cllr Richard Kellaway admitted before the ceremony that it meant a lot to him.
He said: "This a very important year for the nation as we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of World War One, the 75th anniversary of the start of World War Two and the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings."
Representatives from regiments stationed in Windsor, the town's Reserve forces, cadet associations and the Royal British Legion had all been invited to attend the ceremonies and bring their standards.
