Flag of Hong Kong (GIF)

The flag of Hong Kong (Simplified Chinese: 香港特别行政区区旗; Traditional Chinese: 香港特別行政區區旗) features a design of five bauhinia petals, each adorned with a star, set against a red background. The red color represents the motherland, embodying the inseparable connection between Hong Kong and China. The bauhinia flower, as the emblem of Hong Kong, symbolizes the prosperity and unique identity of the region within the embrace of the motherland. The five stars on the flower signify the unity and affection of all Hong Kong residents towards their homeland. The incorporation of red and white colors embodies the fundamental principle of "one country, two systems," signifying the distinct yet harmonious coexistence of Hong Kong within the broader framework of China. The flag serves as a visual representation of the region's political and cultural alignment with China while maintaining its own administrative and legal systems.
