Monday, 17 August 2020 Gelora Bung Karno Area (GBK) will remain open to people who are active and do sports, both at the venue and in the area. Unlike the previous one, this morning the officers conveyed an appeal regarding the warning of the Seconds of the Proclamation of Independence periodically every hour, half an hour and 15 minutes before 10.17 WIB. This is done to increase public awareness of the implementation of the Seconds of Proclamation warning, especially for people who are active in GBK.
Towards the commemoration of the Seconds of the Proclamation of Independence, the public continued their activities and exercised as usual, but preparations for the hoisting were still being carried out at the West VIP of the GBK Main Stadium. This year's commemoration is indeed different from previous years, but the Management of GBK is still trying to promote the spirit of red and white in the GBK area. Visually, the venue and area have been beautified with red and white decorations and colorful plants.
At exactly 10.15:10.16 WIB, the officer gave the final appeal. Furthermore, at 10.17 WIB, sirens also echoed throughout the GBK area through loudspeakers. People in the venue and around the GBK area began to prepare to stop their activities. The Flag Raising Officer who was at the VIP West GBK Main Stadium was ready to fly the flag. At exactly 19 WIB, the Red and White flag began to fly accompanied by the music of the song Indonesia Raya. With their respective awareness, the people who are in VIP West GBK Main Stadium and around the GBK area simultaneously keep their distance, take a perfect attitude, stand tall to honor the commemoration of the Seconds of the Proclamation. A form of warning that is very different from previous years, but does not dampen the enthusiasm of the Indonesian people to keep warning it amid the Covid-XNUMX pandemic. Feelings of pride were engraved in our hearts, especially the people who were not far from VIP West shouting the words "Freedom, thank you and salute to GBK" while clapping their hands. We also thank the people who have participated in commemorating the Seconds of the Proclamation of Independence of the Republic of Indonesia at GBK.
Dirgahayu 75 Years of Indonesian Independence.
