ROH chosen to fly the flag for peace in the Midlands

Birmingham’s Royal Orthopaedic Hospital has been chosen to fly the flag for the NHS in the Midlands, to support the Commonwealth of Nations Flag for Peace initiative.

The Commonwealth Flag for Peace features a white dove of peace, symbolising the shared values and principles of the Commonwealth, including co-operation on economic and social development, diversity, respect, friendship and the promotion of peace around the world.

Jo Williams, Chief Executive at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, said: “It is an honour to have been chosen and an opportunity to celebrate the Trust’s diverse workforce which includes colleagues from across the Commonwealth and beyond.”

Every city in the UK will receive a flag for Commonwealth Day, Monday 13th March 2023.

Flags for Peace will also be shared with every Commonwealth nation, with young people encouraged to participate as part of the Commonwealth Year of Youth 2023.
