Commonwealth Day is celebrated on the second Monday in March every year.
People in Commonwealth countries in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and Americas, the Pacific and Europe will observe Commonwealth Day. Faith and civic gatherings, debates, school assemblies, flag raising ceremonies, street parties and fashion shows are just some of the events they will use to celebrate the vast diversity, strong unity and uplifting values that define the Commonwealth.
Each year a theme is chosen for Commonwealth Day. The theme informs events to mark the day and helps to guide activities by Commonwealth organisations throughout the year.
