Chinese National Day in Hong Kong

Flag Raising Ceremony

Every year there is a national day flag raising ceremony, this year it will be held at the Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defense at 7:30a.m. on 1 Oct 2008 (Wed).


The ceremony is jointly presented by the Hong Kong Air Cadet Corps, the Hong Kong Adventure Corps, the Hong Kong Sea Cadet Corps and the Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defense.  After the ceremony, there will be drill performance from the participating corps plus musical performance.
