BEIJING, Oct. 17 (Xinhua) -- Amendments to the National Flag Law and the National Emblem Law were adopted by China's top legislature Saturday in Beijing.

The amendment to the National Flag Law stipulates that national flags shall be displayed in government organs, organizations, plazas, parks and other public places on important holidays and anniversaries.

People may wear national emblem on solemn occasions to express their patriotic feelings, says the amendment to the National Emblem Law.

Lawmakers approved the amendments at the closing meeting of a regular legislative session of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, which started Tuesday.
