Beijing: China`s capital city of Beijing is set to display over two million flower pots in preparation for the 70th anniversary marking the country`s victory over the Japanese Aggression, the media reported on Monday.
Beijing has a tradition of arranging flower decorations for festivals and other important occasions, the Global Times reported.
"The flowers will be arranged at scenic spots, squares and tourist sites in the capital," Zhu Yingzi, an official with Beijing Park Management Centre.
Decorations include 32 large flowerbeds, featuring themes of peace and victory, and over 1,000 smaller arrangements, Zhu said.
Floral decorations in the shape of victory trumpets will be assembled at Zhongshan park, near Tian`anmen Square. Olive branches and dove-shaped arrangements will appear at the Summer Palace in the northwestern part of the capital.
The flowerbeds will be in place from August 23 until September 9, the day when Japanese forces officially surrendered in 1945, ending the Second Sino-Japanese War.
