Fly a Flag for the Commonwealth

Commonwealth flags were raised throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man, UK Overseas Territories, and Commonwealth countries at 10am today [11/03/19] to mark Commonwealth Day.

In Conwy County the flag was raised at Bodlondeb, Conwy.

Local authorities and civic dignitaries, community groups and charities throughout the British Isles took part in local flag raising events and ceremonies of dedication to mark Commonwealth Day.

The event enables people in their local communities to become involved and join with others nationwide in associating themselves with widespread public expression of commitment to the Commonwealth, appreciation of the values it stands for, and the opportunities offered to its citizens around the world.

A specially written Commonwealth Affirmation was read out at each ceremony before the raising of the Commonwealth flag.  

In Conwy, the Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Clwyd, Mrs Jean Bryson, read the Queen’s Message, followed by Conwy County Borough Council Chairman, Cllr Peter Lewis, reading the Affirmation.
