More than 200 thousand people in Beijing watched the raising of the flag of China on the occasion of the 73rd anniversary of the People's Republic of China.


Two hundred and eighteen thousand people visited Beijing's main Tiananmen Square early on Saturday morning to see the ceremony of raising the national flag of China on the occasion of the 73rd anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China. According to the Global Times newspaper, the solemn event was held at dawn by the battalion of the honor guard of the People's Liberation Army of China to the accompaniment of a military orchestra.


A large group of people came to the square at night to take the best places to observe the ceremony.


Many of those who came had five-star red flags with them. Also, the image of the flag of the People's Republic of China could be seen on the clothes and protective masks of people — visitors to Tiananmen were obliged to strictly observe preventive rules against the spread of coronavirus.


In 2021, this ceremony was attended by over 130 thousand people.


On October 1, 1949, the leader of the Chinese Communist movement, Mao Zedong, proclaimed the formation of the People's Republic of China in Tiananmen Square.
