This activity has enhanced our love and belief in our country, said another JNU student, Han Yijing. If we compare our motherland and our patriotism to a star, I think it must be the North Star. As long as it stays in place, none of us will get lost.”

The significance of the activity is that I know how to preserve our national flag by learning its history and development, said a JNU student from Hong Kong. In the future I hope I can say ‘I am Chinese’ in my own voice and words to people all over the world.”

During the past few years of studying on the mainland, we students from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan have felt the kind concern from our motherland and benefited from many policies that were very helpful for our future development, a JNU student from Macao said.

Su Guohui, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and dean of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Institute of Central Nervous System Regeneration, said: Since lots of students from Hong Kong may not be familiar with China's history, we should communicate with them about China's culture, development and opportunities provided by the establishment of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. Then they would realize that now our country is so strong. I hope they can make more contributions in the future.”
JNU also celebrated the 70th anniversary by designating sites on campus with the theme of patriotism where students could take perfect WeChat Moments snaps. By posting Weibo topics and collecting photos online, students expressed their deep love for China and passed on JNU's patriotic enthusiasm to others.
