China held a flag-raising ceremony on Sunday afternoon in which its first aircraft carrier with the hull mark No.16 was transferred to the navy in Dalian city of NE China's Liaoning province.

Chinese media reports said a commissioning ceremony will soon be held in its anchor ground for the carrier, which has been refitted and turned out a new look at Dalian port since China bought the vessel from Ukraine in 2002.
