Commonwealth Day – Monday 13 March

On Monday 13 March at 10am, Councillor Linda Mendez – Mayor of Hatfield, raised the Commonwealth Flag to mark Commonwealth Day.

Commonwealth Day is an opportunity to promote the Commonwealth’s shared values of peace, democracy and equality, and to celebrate the rich diversity of the Commonwealth’s 52 member countries. The year 2017 marks 40 years since Commonwealth Day became a global celebration marked on the same day every year: on the second Monday in March.
