The 71st Anniversary of the Founding of the People's Republic of China

On 1st October 2020, marks the 71st anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China (PRC). Flag-raising ceremonies were held across the country, including the capital city of Beijing, and the special administrative regions (SARs) of Hong Kong and Macao, to celebrate the National Day.

The flag-raising ceremony is held at the Tiananmen Square in Beijing every morning, with the national flag escorted by the Guard of Honor of the Chinese People's Liberation Army and the national anthem played by the military band. But on important days such as the National Day and the New Year's Day, the ceremony attracts larger crowds than usual and nationwide attention.
