Flag flown to mark Commonwealth Day 2021

The Commonwealth Flag has been raised by Malvern Hills District Council to mark Commonwealth Day 2021.

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 flag, which was raised above the Council House, is 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.

The theme this year is centred around the same theme as last year which is: 'Delivering a Common Future: Connecting, Innovating, Transforming'.

This theme highlights how the 54 member countries in the Commonwealth family are 'innovating, connecting and transforming' to help achieve some of its biggest goals, like fighting climate change, promoting good governance and boosting trade.

Cllr Dean Clarke, Chairman of Malvern Hills District Council, said: "By flying the flag above the Council House, we are representing the strong bond and connection that the Malvern Hills district has with communities across the Commonwealth".
