On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, the guns of the Western Front fell silent after more than four years of continuous warfare during the First World War.
In many parts of the world, people observe a two-minute silence at 11am every November 11, to remember those who lost their lives during the First World War as well as in more recent conflicts.
Remembrance Sunday is the second Sunday in November, the Sunday nearest to November 11.
People of all ages will pay their respects to those who have lost their lives in conflicts at Remembrance events across Flintshire.
