We Love China

Dongxing, Guangxi view map

Thanks for Raymondís good question about the meaning of golden stars on the flag of China.

The larger star symbolizes the leadership of the Communist Party of China.
The four smaller stars represent the four categories of the people in China.
And they are farmers, workers, intellectuals and businessmen.
The red background symbolizes the blood of heroes who died during the revolution.
