The Chinese flag is a simple flag but it is also one of the most famous flags. This is largely due to the country’s population and its superpower status among the countries of the world. The Chinese flag design features a red background with 1 large star that is partially surrounded by 4 smaller stars. All five stars are five point stars. The red background stands for the revolution by the communist party, and the stars represent the Chinese people and their unity with their leaders. The Chinese flag is sometimes called the “Five-star Red Flag”. The Chinese flag was designed by an ordinary citizen named Zeng Liansong and it was officially adopted in 1949.
China is officially known as the People’s Republic of China (PRC). China is controlled by a communist party that governs from its capital city of Beijing. China is the world’s most populated country with over 1.3 billion people. China also has the most populated city in the world (Shanghai) and 4 of the top 10 most populated cities in the entire world. Some parts of the country have benefited from the world’s fastest growing economy, while other parts have suffered due to lack of comprehensive government support. Nonetheless, China has become one of the world’s superpower countries and there are no signs of slowing down.
