In June 2011, The Last Post Association received a positive answer for withholding the Last Post ceremony at Ieper on the Flemish Inventory for Immaterial Cultural Heritage.
This acknowledgment is the first step towards a possible incorporation on the well-known UNESCO World Heritage List.
The aim of the Flemish Inventory for Immaterial Cultural Heritage is to preserve the knowledge and habits of certain traditions and to enlarge their notoriety. This is also the objective of the Last Post Association: to remember the sacrifice in perpetuity and to be grateful forever.
The acknowledgment is also a tribute to the historical efforts of so many people and to all the volunteers of the Last Post Association.
