Fly a Flag For the Commonwealth
Fly a Flag for the Commonwealth was inaugurated on Commonwealth Day in 2014. It helps to raise funds for a variety of Commonwealth causes and is a truly international event, with a whole host of vibrants celebrations reflecting the cultural identities of a total population of more than two billion people. Each country will raise its flags in recognition of a remarkable organisation that fosters shared values in democracy, human rights and the rule of law.
This year's event will be held on 9 March 2015 and will begin with the reading out of the Commonwealth Affirmation, before the raising of the flag at 10.00 a.m. outside the Town Council offices on Higher Market Street.
