Flying the flag for the Commonwealth

Published on Friday, 10th March 2017

The Borough Council will 'Fly a Flag for Commonwealth Day’ at 10am on Monday 13 March at the Town Hall.

The intent is for hundreds of Commonwealth flags to be flown in significant, strategic and eye-catching positions across the Commonwealth, the United Kingdom and beyond. Throughout the country, young members of the United Kingdom Army Cadet Force (ACF) will take the Commonwealth flag to the top of the highest peaks in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Fly a Flag for the Commonwealth enables participants to show appreciation for the values the Commonwealth upholds, and the opportunities offered for friendship and cooperation with fellow Commonwealth citizens around the world.
