China’s first aircraft carrier was handed over yesterday to the navy of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA).

The handover ceremony of the 300-meter ship took place in northeast China’s port of Dalian after a lengthy refitting by a Chinese shipbuilder.

During the ceremony the aircraft carrier raised the Chinese national flag on its mast, the PLA flag on its bow and the navy’s colors on its stern.
