Flag flown to mark Commonwealth Day 2020
The Commonwealth Flag has been raised by Malvern Hills District Council to mark Commonwealth Day 2020.
Yesterday (Monday 9 March), Chairman Cllr Dean Clarke raised the flag above the Council House in Malvern.
The flag was one of 1,000 Commonwealth Flags flown in countries around the world as a celebration of the organisation's values of peace, democracy and equality.
Commonwealth Day is held on the second Monday in March each year and is an opportunity for individuals, communities and organisations to promote the values that the Commonwealth stands for.
The theme this year is 'Delivering a Common Future: Connecting, Innovating, Transforming'. This was chosen because the diverse family of 54 Commonwealth countries connect at many levels through extensive and deep-rooted networks of friendship and goodwill.
Cllr Dean Clarke, Chairman of Malvern Hills District Council, said: "I am delighted to raise the flag to mark Commonwealth Day 2020. By flying the flag, we are representing the strong bond and connection that the Malvern Hills district has with communities across the Commonwealth".
