Shaolin Temple’s flag guards upheld the national flag walking into the square of the Gateway in Shaolin Temple at 7am. Abbot Yongxin led monastics in line, solemnly watching the national flag rising in the morning. After rising to the flap pole for few seconds, the national flag was flied at half-mast by the guard under the gaze of all the people silently. Shaolin monks put their palms together devoutly to pray and express their condolences to countrymen sacrificed in the novel coronavirus pandemic.
