The Chinese Flag The red back round on the Chinese flag symbolizes the blood of the heroes who died during war serving their country. The yellow color symbolizes the glorious history and culture. The larger star symbolizes the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party. Then on the other hand the four little stars around the big star symbolizes the four classes of Chinese. The Workers, Peasants, Petty Bhourgeoisie and the National Bhourgeoisie.

3 places I would like to visit I) I would like to visit the Great Wall of China to see both sides of the Great Wall and the beautiful views on both sides of it. But I surely will not walk across the whole of it because it is over 10 kilometers long! 2) When I visit China I will make sure that going to the Sever Star Park will be on the top of my list of things to do. I would like to see the cute and cuddly Giant Pandas in their National Reserve.
3 places I would like to visit (resumed) Splash! I was just imagining myself jumping into the beautiful West Lake in China. This particular lake used to be the center of one of the major cities. It is now a beautiful scenic tourist attraction!
Traditions Smoking is a very well known and common tradition in China. What better way to get a job interview than to offer the manager a cigarette? I know we don’t do that in the U.S.A. but in China it is very customary. This is a literal smoking jacket. Yes I’m not mistaken the Chinese people take smoking very seriously.
Traditions again This may look expensive but it’s really not. This is a regular day to day well, sweatshirt to the Chinese.
