One of the most beautiful works of art standing magnificently in the midst of a concrete jungle the “Forever Blooming Bauhinia” sculpture or the Golden Bauhinia is one of the most iconic monuments of the nation of Hong Kong. The Golden Bauhinia Square is also known as the Expo Promenade and is one of the country’s historic locations, which marked a shift in its sovereignty.
The Golden Bauhinia Square, located outside the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, which overlooks the shimmering waters of the Shing Mun River, offers visitors a beautiful waterfront. This very location marked the day by which Hong Kong agreed to hand over the administration of the country to the People’s Republic of China, whereby it was the country came to become Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. To mark this momentous occasion in history, the Golden Bauhinia Square was the location, which saw the handover of what Prince Charles referred to as the “”the richest jewel in the British Crown”.
To commemorate Hong Kong’s return to China, the Forever Blooming Bauhinia was a gift by the Chinese people in order to spread the joy in its welcome to its motherland after the period of 150 years. Located close to the sculpture itself stands the Reunification Monument that includes the calligraphy of President Jiang Zemin as well as the flagpoles, which are raised daily.
