Red Flags Briefly Appear in Mudanjiang

Yesterday at the central Culture Square (文化广场) in Mudanjiang, I was reminded that the National Day of the People's Republic of China is approaching.

Chinese and red flags surrounding the Guomao Shopping Center (国贸商城) at Culture Square (文化广场) in Mudanjiang, China

Curiously, almost all of the Chinese and plain red flags surrounding the main entrance to the underground Guomao Shopping Center (国贸商城) were gone today. Only a few on top of its main sign (not seen in the above photo) remained.

National Day will begin October 1 regardless though. And some cities not very far away will soon see hotel rates quadrupling in the holiday spirit.

UPDATE: An explanation for the disappearing (and later reappearing) flags here.
