Every August 17, Indonesia celebrates independence day. Various events are held to make this celebration more lively each and every year, such as traditional competition, performing arts and flag ceremony where participants symbolize their honor to the nation by rising national flag ‘Sang Merah Putih’ and singing national anthem ‘Indonesia Raya’.

Our units in Surabaya and Timika are also conducted a flag ceremony to join this national celebration. In Surabaya, the flag ceremony took place in Grand Darmo Suite which attended by all the staff of Grand Darmo Suite and G Suites Hotel. This ceremony also followed by general staff meeting (GSM) in each units in order to bond the staff one to another. Meanwhile in Timika, the flag ceremony also attended by all the staff of Grand Mozza Timika. All the participants followed the ceremony solemnly as they sang the national anthem together.

This annual event is a great moment to embed and increase the nationalism of all our staffs through contribution to the nation especially tourism industry. We believe, this sense of belonging will encourage them to serve better and furthermore, this will be able to promote Indonesian tourism to the next level.
