Comhairle nan Eilean Siar today formally raised the Commonwealth Flag to celebrate Commonwealth Day.
Lord Lieutenant, Alexander Matheson read out a message from the Queen: “I am pleased to learn that so many people will be taking part in the
“Fly a Flag for the Commonwealth” initiative...which will see a record number of Commonwealth flags being raised on one day. I send my good
wishes to all who are taking part.”
Comhairle Convener, Cllr Norman MacDonald, led the ceremony, and five Youth Legacy Ambassadors from the Nicolson Institute read out the Commonwealth Affirmation. Kara Hanlon and Connor Maclean, both of whom are Young Ambassadors, then did the honours of raising the flag.
