Beijing will decorate Tian'anmen Square and its Chang'an Avenue with a giant flower basket and 10 flower beds to celebrate the upcoming National Day holiday, which lasts from Sept 29 to Oct 6 overlapping with the Mid-Autumn Festival.

Themed "blessing the motherland", an 18-meter-high flower basket will be set up in the central area of Tian'anmen Square, aiming to create a grand and festive atmosphere for the 74th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China, according to the Beijing Municipal Forestry and Parks Bureau.

In particular, the large flower basket will for the first time include five cereals, which symbolize the harvest of grain, and day lily, which represents wishes for the motherland with a happy birthday.

The flower decorations, having a total area of 5,050 square meters will also be displayed alongside the square, according to the bureau.

Along Chang'an Avenue, 10 more flower beds of varying styles, will also be displayed, including one themed "common prosperity for all" and another themed "peaceful development".

Across the city, the capital will arrange over 40 sets of themed flower beds, more than 100,000 square meters of planted flowers and over 10,000 flower boxes. A total of more than 13 million pots of flowers will be used.

All these decorating projects will be completed by the end of this month (September), the bureau said.
