6th August 2019 – (Hong Kong) The daily flag-raising ceremony  held before the ‘Forever Blooming Bauhinia’ sculpture was cancelled by police at 8am due to security reasons.

As many violent clashes and protests continued to take place in various parts of the city, Hong Kong has been severely paralysed.
