"The five-star red flag flutters in the wind, how loud the victory song is..." Accompanied by the children's confident singing, the five-star red flag was rising, and the dawn light reflected the immature faces.

The sun is out.

The next moment, the girl Chenglai Ah Mao suddenly turned her head and whispered to the reporter: "Oops! I just cared about singing and forgot to look up at the flag-raising! "Participating in the Tiananmen Square flag-raising ceremony for the first time in his life, but because he was immersed in the song, he could not capture the most wonderful moment, and Chenglai Ah Mao was a little annoyed.

Yushu also has a five-star red flag fluttering in the morning light and a rising sun, but for many children, this flag-raising ceremony has a special meaning.

These children came from the Yushu Prefecture Children's Welfare Institute in Qinghai Province and grew up bathed in the love and care of the motherland. As early as before leaving for Beijing, many children said that their most anticipated trip was to go to Tiananmen Square to see the flag raising.
