The responsibility for guarding China's national flag and firing salute cannons was transferred to the People's Liberation Army starting Jan 1, 2018, as authorized by the Communist Party of China Central Committee.

Before Jan 1, the ceremony had been conducted by the Armed Police since 1982.

Here we remember and honor the services of the Armed Police force.
