    Texanman here,

    I saw Jim’s 2nd part of China trip. I enjoyed both the story, and video, but there was a part where Jim explained what the stars on the flag represented somewhat amazed me as I recalled reading an article that the stars represented something like state. Both before and after England/British returned Hong Kong to China, the cloumnist mentioned a star added to the flag every time they appeared in the newspaper. They said that China would and did add 5th star, which represented H.K., to the flag. Did I read wrong? Can you clarify it?

    Thank you in advance.

    excerpt from wikipedia:

    The current design uses red as its background and bright yellow for its stars. The red background symbolizes the blood shed throughout the revolution. The yellow colour mainly symbolizes the glorious history and culture of the Chinese people and was partly inherited from the colours of the flag of Soviet Union, which was also a combination of red and yellow, in which case the yellow symbolizes the brightness of the communist future.

    The larger star symbolizes the leadership of the Communist Party of China and the four smaller stars that surround the big star symbolize the four classes of Chinese that were considered unitable by Mao at that historical time (from one of Mao’s work: On The People’s Democratic Dictatorship); these are the Workers, Peasants, Petty Bourgeoisie (i.e. Small Business Class), and National Bourgeoisie (i.e. Chinese non-governmental businessmen). It should be noted that the view of the bourgeoisie classes was changed in the political movements afterwards. Readers should be aware that there are alternative interpretations, such as five stars representing the five biggest ethnic groups or the four stars representing the classes not exactly like the four mentioned above. Unfortunately, these interpretations have no historical basis. The most popular interpretation is the four stars represent the four occupations central to the state, which are Farmers, Workers, Soldiers, and Teachers (see also Four occupations). The one important point to note here is that the bigger star represents the Chinese Communist Party which is claimed as the leader of all.
