Cromer councillors gathered on Battle of Britain Day to remember the few as the RAF ensign was unfurled at Cromer Parish Church.
The mayor and deputy mayor attended the unfurling at 9am on Saturday, September 15, on Church Street.
Mayor David Pritchard said: 'It was on Battle of Britain Day which the town council decided to include in their flag flying policy.
'The flag was flown just for the day.'
Mr Pritchard added: 'Battle of Britain Day is even more important than normal as its the centenary of the RAF this year, founded in 1918.'
