There were also a series of activities for the public, which were all well received.

First of all, there was the territory-wide activity "Together We Safeguard Our Nation and Homeland - Community Mosaic Wall". Many local organisations and thousands of people showed their support for and participated in the activity, creating a vibrant atmosphere. Participants took photos at the scene or chose photos from their mobile phones, and put the photo stickers onto a jigsaw board to create a thematic mosaic. They also helped each other to take photos to mark this meaningful day.
