Happy Commonwealth Day to all those celebrating across the Commonwealth!
The Mayor, Councillor Darren Hobson and the Mayor’s Sergeant raise the flags outside Sessions House marking Commonwealth Day 2021.
Today, 54 independent countries celebrate Commonwealth Day under the theme #CommonwealthDelivers for this diverse family of nations. This year’s theme was chosen because the Commonwealth countries connect at many levels through extensive and deep-rooted networks of friendship and goodwill.
The 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.
