    The following information is extracted from the website of Hong Kong Government. I also attach the Chinese version in case you do not understand the English.

    "Located outside the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Golden Bauhinia Square, which witnessed the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), represents the end of British colonial rule and the return of the territory to China. The Golden Bauhinia, standing on the Expo Promenade outside the Centre is a gift from the People's Republic of China to commemorate the establishment of the HKSAR on July 1, 1997.

    The national flag of China and the regional flag of the HKSAR, fluttering over the Expo Promenade, are raised at 8:00am every day. On July 1, the anniversary of HKSAR's establishment and October 1, the National Day, there is a solemn flag-raising ceremony followed by a parade by the guard of honour, an aerobatics performance by the Government Flying Service and a demonstration by fire fighting boats, attracting thousands of citizens and tourists to witness the spectacle.

    Near to the Golden Bauhinia stands the Reunification Monument bearing inscriptions of President Jiang Zemin's calligraphy. The white ring round the pinnacle denotes the return of Hong Kong's sovereignty to China, and the 50 rings above it symbolize that the HKSAR's way of life will remain unchanged for 50 years.

    金紫荊廣場位於會展中心旁邊,放置了金紫荊雕塑,是中華人民共和國送贈予香港特別行政區政府的賀禮,慶祝特區在一九九七年七月一日成立。在金紫荊廣場上飄揚著國旗及區旗,每日上午8時會舉行簡單而莊嚴的升旗儀式。每年在七月一日的慶祝特區成立紀念日及十月一日的國慶日,該處都會舉行隆重的升旗儀式,配合儀仗隊步操,飛行服務隊的空中花式飛行及消防船的海上噴水表演,吸引成千上萬的市民及遊客前來欣賞。

    金紫荊雕塑附近屹立著回歸紀念碑,上面刻有江澤民主席的親筆題字,碑頂的白環象徵香港的主權歸還中國,而上面的50個環則代表香港特別行政區的生活方式保持50年不變。"
