Tibet's flag

Proving once again that everything is made in China, it has emerged that the banned flags of Tibet are actually manufactured in Chinese factories! I read it on the BBC, although it sounds like something The Onion would come up with. Do I need to really say anything else?

Taiwan's flag

This story also reminds me of the independence flag of Taiwan, pictured above, which was the subject of a West Wing episode a few years back. No news if that, too, is made in China. Considering Tibet is technically part of China and Taiwan isn’t, these are prolly made on the island. Either way, it’s still “home turf” in a matter of speaking. China is complicated … and scary.
