The Forever Blooming Bauhinia Sculpture that gives the Expo Promenade the commonly used name, Golden Bauhinia Square (“GBS”), was a gift from the Central Government to mark the 1997 Handover. A Flag-raising Ceremony is held daily at 8am. The Reunification Monument, located near the Sculpture, bears inscriptions of the calligraphy of President Jiang Zemin who represented China at the Handover Ceremony.

The GBS is designed as a public open space for all members of the public, residents and tourists alike, to enjoy the view comfortably and safely, and to pay solemn respect to the National and HKSAR flags and the monuments.

The GBS is adjacent to the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (“HKCEC”). Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (Management) Limited (“HML”) has the responsibility to maintain its cleanliness and order, and to provide general security surveillance via CCTV and periodic patrol.

Visitors are advised to avoid inappropriate behaviour. Upon receiving complaints, HML reserves the right to report to law enforcement bodies and to claim compensation for any tangible losses. For example, any illegal activities, including smoking and use of drones; any activities that cause obstructions to other visitors including erection of temporary structures and banners; any acts that may cause damage to the GBS, its monuments, flagpoles and other facilities; use of loudhailers or amplifiers; peddling; begging; distribution of leaflets or other annoyances; driving or parking vehicles.
