After discussion with the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government, The Hong Kong Paralympic Committee (HKPC) issued Guidelines on Handling the Playing of the National Anthem and Raising of the Regional Flag for Hong Kong Athletes and Teams Engaging in International Sports Events (Guidelines) to all National Sports Associations (NSAs) under HKPC. The Guidelines is to ensure that proper respect is afforded to our National Anthem and Regional Flag. HKPC reminded all NSAs to strictly abide by the relevant instructions.
Meanwhile, a briefing session by HKPC on the Guidelines was held on 1 December 2022 for the office bearers and staff of NSAs to attend. Such briefing sessions will be held at least once a year by HKPC to ensure that all members of NSAs are to be reminded of the importance of this subject.
The above Guidelines will take effect immediately. The full version of the Guidelines is available at HKPC website: HKPC Guideline on Handling National Anthem and Regional Flag_English
