The Taiwan flag is a red flag with a dark blue canton with twelve rays of the white sun. The same white sun is featured on its dark blue round emblem. In China, the flag is often described as "Blue Sky, White Sun, and Fully Red World" to reflect its characteristics. Also, the twelve rays of the sun represent the twelve months; the blue represents nationalism and freedom; the white, democracy and equality; and the red, the livelihood and fraternity of the people. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on May 5, 1921.
