I recently did a survey on my Instagram (check it our here) asking my followers if they know what the five stars on the Chinese flag stands for. Surprisingly a lot of followers living in China didn’t know about the meaning of it. That’s why I did a little research and want to share with you the knowledge and give you a brief overview about this topic.

Let’s get right to the point and learn what the five stars on the Chinese flag stand for:

The big star represents the Communist Party of China. It can be seen that the big start oversees the smaller ones. And that’s what the Communist Party wants to do. Take care for each and everyone living in China.

The four smaller stars represents each one of the social classes that were common, when the flag was applied in 1949:

One stands for the peasantry, one for the urban petite bourgeoisie the
national bourgeoisie and the last one for the working class. The flag should unite each and every citizen of China and let everyone feel included into the plans the party had in the early days of China.

Another “theory” says each of the five stars represent an ethnic group that is living in China. Uyghurs, Manchus, Hui Chinese, Han Chinese and Zhuangs.

But the Chinese flag isn’t just the stars. is is as well colored in the national color: red. As already mentioned the flag was applied in 1949. The revolution just ended and that’s why the flag is colored in the color of revolution: red.
