On the morning of October 1, a flag-raising ceremony took place in the Zhongshan Ophthalmic Center on the occasion of the 60th Anniversary of Founding of New China. Over 100 people, including party and administrative leaders of the Center, middle-level cadres, representatives of party members, Youth League members, active applicants for CPC membership, graduates and medical staff in holiday shift, attended the event.

By 8:20, participants of the flag-raising ceremony had all gathered in front of the flag-raising post. In neat formation, they awaited the ascending moment of the red, five-star flag in the midst of the passionate melody Sing for the Motherland.

By 8:30, at a burst of the loud, resonant slogan, the spirited 19-member escort team of the national flag strode to the flat-raising post in neat pace in discipline.

Upon the playing of the solemn national anthem, and as the flag raiser gestured a beautiful swing, the red five-star flag rose slowly in the post. During the ceremony, all the participants saluted to the flag, extending their wishes of thriving and prosperity to their motherland.
