This day takes place on the eve of Chinese National Day and honours those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the struggle for the creation of the People's Republic of China on October 1st 1949.

Each year, the President along with other members of the Politburo Standing Committee and representatives of the military, present flower baskets at the monument to people’s heroes which the Communist Party built on the square in 1949 to honour those who helped found the PRC, including 3.7 million people who died between 1921, when the party was founded, and 1949.

The annual ceremony has been marked officially in China as “martyrs day” since 2014.
