How well do you know our Commonwealth?

Commonwealth Day groupWe joined our fellow member states across the world to mark the second ever Commonwealth Day in March. But how well do you know our Commonwealth?

As part of the celebrations the Mayor of Hertsmere, Councillor Carey Keates, held a competition for Hertsmere schoolchildren aged between five and 11 to identify as many of the 53 Commonwealth countries as possible on a map. We think it's pretty hard - see how many you can identify!

The winner of the competition, 10-year-old Carmen Gonzalez-Aller from Hartsbourne Primary School, attended the ceremony to help raise the Commonwealth Flag outside the Civic Offices.
