HKSAR govt to amend national flag, emblem ordinance


HONG KONG: The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) government said that it will introduce amendments to the National Flag and National Emblem Ordinance.

The move came after amendments to the National Flag Law and the National Emblem Law were adopted by the National People’s Congress (NPC) on Saturday.

The NPC had adopted an amendment to the National Flag Law which stipulates that national flags shall be displayed in government organs, organisations, plazas, parks and other public places on important holidays and anniversaries.

People may wear national emblems on solemn occasions to express their patriotic feelings, according to the amendment.

Lawmakers approved the amendment at the closing meeting of a regular legislative session of the Standing Committee of the NPC, which started last Tuesday. — Xinhua
