​New Backpack Given Away at National Day Flag-raising Ceremony

​New Backpack Given Away at National Day Flag-raising CeremonyThe Department of Civil Affairs (DCA) organized a press event on October 4 to introduce the upcoming Double-ten Flag-raising Ceremony event at city hall and the souvenirs given away this year – the seventh-generation bee-buzz backpack.
 
Like the past years, the back packs will be available in two colors as well – khaki green and grey-blue. The sleek and young-looking design of the bag presents the Double-ten symbol in an innovative manner, highlighting the colors of red, blue, and white. The bag design integrates 4 different bag types – hand carry bag, backpack, shoulder bag, and messenger bag.
 
According to DCA, due to the limit on the number of attendees in the interest of pandemic prevention, only 500 positions are open to the public for pre-registration. At the same time, the agency will also offer additional souvenirs.
 
Pre-registration will open at 11 AM on October 6. Those successfully making the reservation will need to bring their National ID and email notification to collect their souvenirs after the flag-raising ceremony.
