The ‘Fly a Flag for the Commonwealth’ initiative is again catching the imagination of thousands of participants from all walks of life, inspiring them to join with others throughout the Commonwealth.

The Mayor of Wellingborough, Cllr Malcolm Waters, will read out a specially written Commonwealth Affirmation, followed by a personal message from the Secretary- General of the Commonwealth of Nations, The Right Honourable Patricia Scotland QC, before the raising of the Commonwealth Flag at 10am.


The event, which is now in its third year, will take place in front of the council’s Swanspool House and is one of more than 700 similar events taking place throughout the UK and around the world.


Bruno Peek LVO OBE OPR – Originator and Commonwealth Pageantmaster, of 'Fly a Flag for the Commonwealth’, said: "I am amazed how quickly this event has caught the public imagination in the UK and around the Commonwealth. We are only in our third year, and the involvement of the Army Cadet Force this year, along with the participation of so many people of all ages and from all walks of life, shows the enormous potential of this project and of the Commonwealth. It is a positive and uplifting way for people to link with and assist fellow citizens of the Commonwealth in a family that spans across oceans and continents.”


Anyone wishing to join the Wellingborough celebration should assemble in front of Swanspool House at 9.50am on Monday 13 March.
