Fly the Flag for Commonwealth 2022
Residents’ are invited to join the Town Council who will raise a flag at 11.00am on Monday 14th March at Sparrow Park to mark Commonwealth Day 2022.
Fly a Flag for the Commonwealth is an occasion to acknowledge publicly and collectively the continuing aspiration of the Commonwealth to build on common traditions and uphold our shared values of democracy, inclusive development and respect for diversity.
The theme for Commonwealth Day 2022 will centre around the theme for the forthcoming Commonwealth Head of Government Meeting – ‘Delivering a Common Future’ which highlights how the 54 member countries in the Commonwealth family are ‘innovating, connecting and transforming’ to help achieve goals like fighting climate change, promoting good governance and boosting trade.
Given that 2022 is Her Majesty’s Jubilee Year, there will also be a special focus this year on the role service plays in the lives of people and communities across the Commonwealth.
Commonwealth is a voice for small and vulnerable states, and a champion for
young people. Home to 2.4 billion citizens across both developing and advanced
economies, the Commonwealth is 54 countries working together for prosperity, democracy
and peace. Learn more at https://thecommonwealth.org/commonwealth-day.
