Opening Ceremony

Posted by Alice Morland

The Games got off to a showbizzy tartan start with a song of the Clyde - of iconic Scottish inventions and discoveries, including dancing teacakes!

I wasn't at the Opening Ceremony so the photos are via my TV screen!

The Queen's Baton was flown to the riverside and made its way to Celtic Park.

There was a humungous screen alongside one complete side of the stadium and a rainbow-coloured track, round which the athletes paraded, complete with wee Scottie dugs in front..


The Red Arrows did a fly-past as the Queen and Prince Philip arrived.


All the Commonwealth Nations were greeted with loud enthusiasm and Scotland as the host Team were the final ones to come into the Stadium.


The Baton was brought by relay to the Queen, where there was some difficulty in opening it to remove the Queen's Message for her to read!

Fireworks rounded off an exciting evening.
The Duke of Wellington Statue is always humorously behatted with a traffic cone
