York Flying The Flag For The Commonwealth
The Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress preparing to raise the Commonwealth flag
City of York Council and the Civic Party is showing their support for Commonwealth Day today (Monday 13 March) by flying the Commonwealth flag.

The flag was raised by the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress today in respect of others in the Commonwealth in a spirit of understanding and to celebrate the variety and unmatched diversity throughout the Commonwealth.

The Lord Mayor then led a short ceremony as part of the nationwide Single Commemorative Act, remembering those from across the Commonwealth who fought alongside British troops and who gave their lives in the First World War.

Commonwealth Day looks to promote understanding on global issues, international co-operation and raise awareness of the work of the Commonwealth's organisations.

The Rt Hon The Lord Mayor of York, Cllr Dave Taylor said:
"I am delighted that the city is once again supporting Commonwealth Day and the Single Commemorative Act. Commonwealth Day looks to recognise the global work of the Commonwealth, its values and diversity."
