Media invite: 'Fly a Flag for the Commonwealth'

Next Monday, 10 March, is Commonwealth Day and Waltham Forest Council will be participating in ‘Fly a Flag for the Commonwealth’. If you’d like to join the Mayor, Leader, Deputy Lieutenant and others for a brief flag raising ceremony outside the Assembly Hall (next to Walthamstow Town Hall), please gather at 9.50am.

Now is the perfect time to celebrate the true value of the Commonwealth as an increasingly multi-cultural world seeks unity, understanding and tolerance. We want to herald this amazing and influential family of nations which spans all the continents with a Fly the Flag tribute on Commonwealth Day.

The intent is for a record number of Commonwealth flags to be flown in significant, strategic and eye-catching positions across the UK and beyond – with many expected to reappear at the start of the Commonwealth Games in July.
