In 1958, the then Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Harold Macmillan, proclaimed in the Parliament that Empire Day would be renamed ‘Commonwealth Day’.

The Commonwealth shares history with Britain, along with some business processes, common legal systems, and cultural links. The Commonwealth Secretariat then appointed the second Monday of March to be observed as Commonwealth Day, throughout all countries of the Commonwealth. Though, some countries celebrate it on the 24th of May every year. 

Commonwealth Day Aim & Significance

Commonwealth Day’s significance is of ‘being an emblem of the unity of sentiments to those ideals of justice, freedom, and tolerance for which the British Empire stood throughout the planet’, as delivered in an article dated 1916. The aim of the day, when it was observed as Empire Day, also included prompting all the children that they constituted a part of the British Empire. The children must also think like others who live in other territories. They must also learn what it is like to be the daughters and sons of the Empire.
