The former Portuguese colony of Mozambique was so violent after independence that it put an AK47 on its flag.

Mozambique chose to join the Commonwealth of Nations, an association of former UK colonies, because of the support it received from them.
Since it has no past history of being part of the british Empire I have sometimes wondered why?
To make trade easier between Mozambique and the surrounding former British colonies.
:lol: :lol: :lol: (good one!)
Commonwealth of Nations is just a cultural club. It is not a trade group. The main thing it does seems to be to hold the Commonwealth games.
True! There is a little more to the Commonwealth than that but it is neither trade pact nor is it a military alliance.

I have heard that the greatest single enthusiast promoting the Commonwealth as an international body has been Queen Elizabeth the Second. While The Queen cannot participate in government and therefore has no direct imput into government policy; the Crown is apparently still a rather potent influence behind the scene in ways like that.
