More national flags to fly in China: draft law amendment

August 10, 2020

BEIJING - China's State newsagency, Xinhua, says Chinese national flags will be flying in more places in the country, including compounds of Party and State organs, schools and public cultural facilities.

The updates, the first in about 10 years, were proposed to foster a social atmosphere of respecting and cherishing the national symbols and reinforce patriotism, Xinhua said, quoting an explanatory document.

Education on the national flag would be incorporated into the patriotism education of full-time schools, while media outlets would be required to publicise national flag knowledge. (ATI).
