Commonwealth Day

Commonwealth Day is a day of celebration for all the countries of the Commonwealth. Falling on the second Monday in March, it will next fall on 13th March 2023.

What is the Commonwealth?

The Commonwealth comprises 54 countries of the world, big and small, rich and poor. Most, but not all, of the countries were once part of the British Empire. About 2.5bn people live in the Commonwealth - that's 30% of the world's population! And 60% of that population are under 30 years old!

The Commonwealth stands for diversity, friendship and, most importantly, equality. The Commonwealth promotes values like respect, tolerance and understanding of different cultures and religions. All countries in the Commonwealth, whatever their size, are regarded as equal, and all work together on a shared set of goals. The Commonwealth's headquarters is in London, at Marlborough House. Every 2 years all the nations get together for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting.

Membership of the Commonwealth is voluntary and countries may leave if they wish, without consequences or obligations. Commonwealth countries are democratic and agree to varous principles including world peace, racial equality, human rights and the rule of law. Occasionally, countries have been suspended from the Commonwealth if they forget those principles.
