Comhairle nan Eilean Siar raised a special flag to celebrate Commonwealth Day.
The event, held on the second Monday in March each year, is an opportunity for individuals,
communities and organisations to promote the Commonwealth’s shared values of peace,
democracy and equality, and to celebrate the association’s rich diversity.
Cllr Alasdair Macleod, vice chairman of the council’s policy committee, said: “I
am pleased to learn that so many people throughout the Commonwealth will be taking
part in the 'fly-a-flag for the Commonwealth' initiative this year.
“I am delighted that the Comhairle once again participated in Commonwealth Day and
all that the Commonwealth represents.”
