Themed “One in Diversity,” the event held specifically for the media crew was also enlivened by traditional dances from Jakarta, Bali and Papua.

Avatara said that the theme was chosen to remind all about diversity as the identity and strength of the country.

Besides witnessing the flag unfurling, the media crew was invited to tour the Jakarta Aquarium and Safari featuring more than 3,500 species of aquatic and non-aquatic animals including fishes, jellyfishes, turtles and various other animals.
