A message that is carried on the Baton from the Queen admonishes Commonwealth athletes to come together in friendly and peaceful competition.


The carrying of the Queen’s Baton throughout the Caribbean helps to build excitement in the lead up to the 2018 Commonwealth Games to be held in Australis from April 4th to 15th 2017.
