It is said that if you want to stand in the front row, you have to stay up all night. This time, because the distance was a bit far, it was useless even with a long gun and a short cannon. Fortunately, I took a few photos with my mobile phone.

Although everyone stays up late to watch the flag-raising ceremony, I think everyone thinks it is worth it, because whenever the solemn five-star red flag is raised and the loud and clear national anthem is fluttering in the sky, you will feel your blood boil, and your heart will also feel the excitement.
