     The Chief Executive-elect, Mrs Carrie Lam, and senior government officials will attend a flag-raising ceremony on Saturday (July 1) to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR).

     The flag-raising ceremony will be held at Golden Bauhinia Square in Wan Chai at 8am. About 2,400 people including community leaders, members of community groups and uniformed groups will attend the ceremony.

     The Police Band will perform at the ceremony and a mixed choir from Diocesan Boys' School and Diocesan Girls' School will sing the national anthem under the lead of two singers, Mr Albert Lim and Ms Louise Kwong, followed by a fly-past and a sea parade by the disciplined services.

     Following the flag-raising ceremony, the Celebrations of the 20th Anniversary of Hong Kong's Return to the Motherland and the Inaugural Ceremony of the Fifth Term Government of the HKSAR will be held at the Grand Hall of the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

     About 2,000 guests, including members of the Executive and Legislative Councils, consular corps and members of various community sectors, will attend the ceremony.

     People are reminded that no public viewing area will be set up for the flag-raising ceremony on July 1. Golden Bauhinia Square and the nearby area will be designated as a restricted zone by the Police. Only holders of valid passes will be allowed entry.
