Taipei, Aug. 25 (CNA) The Southern Branch of the National Palace Museum will feature the Republic of China (ROC, Taiwan’s official name) national flag in an upcoming drone show on Sunday, the museum in Chiayi County said Thursday.
Sunday’s drone show will be the third in a series of four such events organized by the museum, and the national flag will be shown in the sky using 500 drones in formation, it said.
The national flag display will cover an area of 1.2 hectares in the sky, and serve as a preview of the Oct. 10 National Day fireworks show which will be held at the museum this year, it told CNA.
The iconic jadeite cabbage from the National Palace Museum collection will also be featured in the drone show on Sunday and is expected to be presented in more vivid colors thanks to the 500 drones, the museum added.
