Flag Competition

There is a regular display of flags around Harleston town centre.  This year we will be running a series of competitions, to make them even more exciting.

We are beginning with 'Commonwealth Countries'.  Most of the flags on display belong to countries which are part of the Commonwealth, but there is an odd one out.  One of the flags belongs to a country which is not part of the Commonwealth.  Can you spot the flag and name the country?

 

If you can name the country, you have a chance to win £20 of Harleston Vouchers which can be spent in participating shops in town.

The competition is FREE to enter and is open between 9 - 15 March.

The Commonwealth is a voluntary association of 54 independent and equal countries.  It is home to 2.4 billion people, and includes both advanced economies and developing countries, 32 of the members are small states, including many island nations.

The member governments have agreed to shared goals like development, democracy and peace. Their values and principles are expressed in the Commonwealth Charter.

The Commonwealth's roots go back to the British Empire. But today any country can join the modern Commonwealth. The last country to join the Commonwealth was Rwanda in 2009.
