Beijing will display 2.8 million flower pots to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the country's victory in the Chinese People's War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression(1937-45).

Beijing has a tradition of organizing flower decorations for festivals and other important occasions.

"The flowers will be arranged at scenic spots, squares and tourist sites in the capital," said Zhu Yingzi, an official with the Beijing Park Management Center.

The decorations will include 32 large flowerbeds, featuring themes of peace and victory, and more than 1,000 smaller arrangements, Zhu said.

Floral decorations in the shape of victory trumpets will be assembled at Zhongshan Park, near Tiananmen Square.

Olive branches and dove-shaped arrangements will appear at the Summer Palace in the northwestern part of the capital.

The flowerbeds will be in place from August 23 to early September.
