2019.10.10 Blue Sky, White Sun and a Wholly Red Hong Kong

In celebration of the National Day of the Republic of China (Taiwan), Hongkongers voluntarily organised a campaign called “Connecting Hong Kong and Taiwan – Celebrating National Day”. The flag of “Blue Sky, White Sun, and a Wholly Red Earth”, Taiwan flag and Taiwan Independence flag were planted all over Hong Kong. Many netizens shared the festive scenes of Taiwan flags fluttering in summer air.

According to a Facebook group called The Hong Kong Emergency Alert, a user shared photos of a Taiwan flag planted in the middle of a bridge above a main road in Tseung Kwan O. Exclaiming at the sight of what he called the “real” China flag, the others joined in to write celebratory comments on how Hong Kong shares the same joy as Taiwan on the  National Day.

The same flags were also seen covering the whole Mong Kok Lennon wall, with eye-catching slogans that reads “Safeguard Taiwan’s democracy and freedom, we walk together on the path to democracy”
