Councillors and staff joined Surrey County Council chairman David Munro in a ceremony to mark Commonwealth Day at County Hall today.
Mr Munro said: “This unique initiative, building on highly successful inaugural events last year, will see over 650 other Commonwealth flags raised in 38 Commonwealth countries.
“It has caught the imagination of thousands of participants around the world, enabling people of all ages in their local communities to become involved and join with others worldwide in associating themselves with widespread public expression of commitment to the Commonwealth, appreciation of the values it stands for and opportunities offered to its citizens.”
More information is available on the Commonwealth website.
