The Flag Raising Ceremony represents not a specific event in Soviet history but rather it symbolises a secular society one in which religion has been replaced by a state ceremony. Instead of a praising God in church on Sunday, the people are encouraged to pay tribute to the state which has replaced what was considered antiquated notions of religion. In Animal Farm, the animals raise the flag similarly to give thanks to the system under which they now live.
