ps if you look closely, that is not an official flag of the People’s Republic of China as it was modified to reflect the attitudes of the demonstrators. In a previous demonstration, the stars representing the ‘minority’ people under Chinese Communist rule were cut out, so that it only had the one yellow star representing the majority Han people.
