As of this morning, China has won 38 Gold medals and at every medal ceremony, their national anthem is played and the Chinese flag is hoisted.
Today I got up and decided to discover why the Chinese Flag has one big star and 4 little stars.
The colour red symbolizes the spirit of the revolution, and the five stars signify the unity of the people of China (the four little stars representing peasants, workers, bourgeoisie, and capitalists) under the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party (the big star).
I think the flag looks pretty...then again, I do look good in red.
