Built in 1993, the Monument to the People’s Heroes was built in memory of the revolutionary martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the liberation of Shanghai since 1840. It has always been a red landmark for citizens and tourists to pay tribute to the martyrs.
At 6:30 in the evening on June 23, the lights came on, and the Bund International Buildings also lit up. On the same day, the People’s Heroes Memorial Tower located at the starting point of the Bund was displayed in front of citizens and tourists with brand new red themed lights.
The three optimistic pillars rising from the ground are like silent monuments, remembering the immortal martyrs who have sacrificed honorably since the Opium War, the May Fourth Movement, and the Liberation War. The original lights of the entire memorial tower were replaced by brand new red wall washer lights, which symbolizes the blood shed by the revolutionary ancestors in order to liberate the cause. From time to time, the tower body also shows the golden laser flashing upwards, looking from a distance as if the flames are dotted, symbolizing A single spark can start a prairie fire. On the pedestal of the memorial tower, in addition to the red wall washer, thousands of point light sources filled the entire wall. The golden point light sources flickered with the wind, like a five-star red flag waving in the wind.
