“I hope that in the year ahead this diverse family of nations can achieve the much-needed progress which our planet so desperately needs and that Nations of all religions and cultures can respect and live peacefully together.” 

Global national flag-raising ceremonies are taking place across the world today. Being brought together, through Commonwealth friendship and cooperation, raising awareness of all being achieved.  

By working together within our local communities, and by interacting globally, we maintain and build a richer connected Commonwealth that is mutually respectful, peaceful, and prosperous.
