The Chinese Flag

At the Chinese New Year parade in downtown DC, there were hundreds upon hundreds of flags of the Republic of China, strung from lamp pole to lamp pole on the streets of Chinatown.

And then there were these two wayward guys, with their homemade flags of the People's Republic China.

These were literally the only two PRC flags at the entire event.

We overheard plenty of hushed commentary as we walked by, and one older lady tried to snap our picture, but that was about the extent of it. No open criticism (or praise, for that matter). So, in the end, we have no idea who might have been more in the cross hairs...the native of Guangdong province or the non-Chinese guy.
