The 25-year-old medic died alongside a Marine after gunfire while on patrol in Helmand Province on Wednesday.
Brigadier Rob Thompson, who commands 38th Irish Brigade, joined Legion representatives at Belfast City Hall for the event.
"As we launch the Poppy Appeal here today in Belfast, supported by the people of Northern Ireland, it's important that we remember the family of Corporal Channing Day, who was killed only two days ago," he said.
"Her family is not 15 miles from where we stand and we hold her family close in this most difficult time and keep them in our thoughts and prayers."
Motorcyclists from the legion's NI Riders branch travelled in convoy to the city hall, something that Brian Maguire said was very different to most people's idea of the Royal British Legion.
"The usual image of the Royal British legion is of older veterans. These are motorcyclists and they're here to deliver the wreath to the Lord Mayor," said the legion spokesman, describing Channing Day's death as "very tragic".
"But it underlines the need for continued support to the work of the Royal British Legion. We spend £1.7m every week of the year providing direct welfare support to the family will need it," Mr Maguire added.
The legion helps military families who have suffered a loss or need support by providing short term crisis loans, legal advice or helping them to find reemployment after leaving the forces.
After receiving the Belfast City Council civic wreath, Lord Mayor Gavin Robinson said this is a sorrowful time for the Day family.
"I didn't get the chance to meet Channing Day but I went to school with her sister, so I know some of the members of the family," he said.
"It's important that we see not only communities rallying round, but now highlighting the importance of the Royal British Legion and the work that they do," he commented, "not only raising awareness of the sorrow and horror of war but the support that ex-servicemen and women need, that veterans need and that grieving families need."
