SCC 'Fly a Flag For The Commonwealth'!

A privilege to support Tony Samuels, Chair of Surrey County Council, at the ceremony at County Hall to mark the Raising of the Commonwealth Flag. This occasion is marked across the entire globe on 11 March each year, and the 2019 theme is ‘A Connected Commonwealth’ – highly appropriate in the current circumstances, and totally in keeping with the ‘powers’ of the High Sheriff to ‘convene’ and ‘connect’. It is comforting to realise that we have many friends across the world, linked by this powerful statement:

‘Our pledge is to support the Commonwealth, working together for a future in which there is freedom and justice and prosperity for all, with peace and understanding between peoples and nations’
