Golden Bauhinia information
A 6m-tall statue (including pedestal) of Hong Kong’s symbol, called the Forever Blooming Bauhinia, stands on the waterfront promenade just in front of the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre to mark the return of Hong Kong to Chinese sovereignty in 1997 and the establishment of the Hong Kong SAR. The flag-raising ceremony, held daily at 8am and conducted by the Hong Kong Police, has become a must-see for visiting tourist groups from the mainland. There’s a pipe band on the 1st, 11th and 21st of each month at 7.45am.
