On this day, a memorial ceremony is held in the National Cemetery in Seoul, first started in 1956. At 10 a.m. on Memorial Day, a siren rings all over the country, and people have silent prayers for one minute. The South Korean flag is flown at half-staff.[1] It is illegal to post pictures of graves of fallen soldiers unless the poster is biologically related to the fallen soldier, otherwise, they can be charged with defamation of character and violation of privacy.[2][better source needed]
