The Commonwealth Games baton symbolises the unity and shared ideals of the Commonwealth of Nations. The Queen’s Baton Relay 2010 Delhi will commence from Buckingham Palace, on the 29th October 2009, and pass through Newham. The baton will then travel through all other 70 Commonwealth nations – a historic journey that will cover more than 170,000 km in 240 days.
In October 2010 over 8,000 athletes from 71 nations will be in Delhi for the start of the 2010 Commonwealth Games, the last major multi-sport event to take place ahead of London 2012. We are delighted to announce that Commonwealth Games England have launched a new brand identity to take the England Team to Delhi 2010 and beyond.
