Residents in Harbin, capital of northeast China's Heilongjiang Province, have made a 1,000-meter-long painting to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Hong Kong's return to China.
The painting, measuring about 1,000 meters long and made up of 100 separate paintings, is now displayed at a park south of the Songhuajiang River in Harbin.
Over 1,000 people, including soldiers stationed in Mohe, the northernmost point of the Chinese territory, students from 20 schools in Harbin and various art groups contributed to the drawings.
The paintings are invariably focused upon national unity, harmony and the ten years of development of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR).
The painting will be sent to Hong Kong for exhibition after it is displayed in Harbin, said Wang Shiyi, an official with the Daoli district publicity department.
