St Andrew’s Day in Uganda [press release]

British High Commission celebrates Scotland’s national day

On Friday 28 November 2014, the British High Commission marked St Andrew’s Day, the national day of Scotland, by flying the Saltire of St Andrews, Scotland’s national flag. St Andrew’s Day is on 30 November, which this year falls on a Sunday. Dressed in the kilt, the most famous element of Scotland’s national costume, Clark Adam, a member of staff at the High Commission and a proud Scot, took charge of raising the Saltire on the High Commission’s flagpole.

Earlier in November 2014, the High Commissioner, HE Alison Blackburne, hosted a business networking event for the British and Chinese business communities in Uganda. At this event, Diageo, the British parent company of Uganda Breweries Ltd, arranged whisky tasting for the investors present, promoting one of Scotland’s best-known exports.

There is a thriving Scottish community in Uganda, and g links between Scotland and Uganda. These include a growing community of Uganda alumni of Scottish universities, many of whom hold key positions in the public and private sectors.
