Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) held a flag-raising ceremony on the morning of New Year’s Day on campus today (1 January). Around a hundred participants attended the ceremony. A number of Council and senior management team members, staff members, alumni and students of the University joined the ceremony.
At the ceremony, the flag-raising was conducted for the first time by the HKBU Student Flag-raising Team. During the rendition of the national anthem, the team raised the national flag alongside the Hong Kong SAR flag and the HKBU flag.
It was a meaningful occasion for the HKBU community as they witnessed the national flag being raised on campus by the Student Flag-raising Team. The ceremony reflected young Hong Kong people’s sense of identity with the motherland, and that they will shoulder the mission of striving for the prosperity and greatness of our nation.
