Commonwealth Day

British Flag

Commonwealth Day is a holiday celebrated by the Commonwealth of Nations, a group of countries once part of the British Empire. It is celebrated on the second Monday in March.

Traditionally on this day, the British Queen addresses the commonwealth from London. In most commonwealth countries this holiday is official, but is not very well-known or widely celebrated. Those that do celebrate it honor their British heritage, displaying the Union Flag and learning about British culture.
