G20 Summit kicked off in Los Cabos of Mexico on June 18. In order to take a family photo, the national flag of each participating country was put on the ground to mark each leader’s position.

After posing for the family photo, all the leaders walked off the stage stepping on the national flags. Only Chinese President Hu Jintao bent down to pick up the Chinese national flag and carefully conserved it. This little detail was highly praised by netizens, who expressed their respect to the Chinese president.

“Chinese national flag represents the dignity of China which in no way should be violated. President Hu preserved the honor of China by his actions, setting a good example for the people all over the country,” a netizen commented.

“I am deeply touched and proud of being a Chinese,” a netizen said.
