Flags[edit]

I was sure I saw three flags (including PRC) on this monument when I last visited HK in early April 2009, possibly a special occasion. Maybe they were just flying nearby and I got confused. Any HK residents can confirm or deny this? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.126.154.21 (talk) 04:14, 21 November 2009 (UTC)

The description of the ceremony is wrong![edit]

I am a HK resident, and what you saw was true. Actually, the description of the ceremony nowadays is wrong. There is still a formal ceremony taking place, with top government officials, legislators, policeman and British veterans attending every year. The flags of Hong Kong, China and another unknown flag are raised on that three poles. You may refer to the following video showing the ceremony taking place in 2008. http://hk.news.yahoo.com/video.html?url=/081109/11/9584.html —Preceding unsigned comment added by 219.73.46.90 (talk) 15:22, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
