Chinese Republic

Received from: Taiwan
Category: Thank You Card
Date: November 2011


Very nice surprise received for this card sent in October :)


Five races under one union was one of the major principles upon which the Republic of China was originally founded in 1911 at the time of the Xinhai Revolution. This principle emphasized the harmony of the five major ethnic groups in China as represented by the colored stripes of the Five-Colored Flag of the Republic: the Han (red); the Manchus (yellow); the Mongols (blue); the Muslims, known at the time as the "Hui" (white); and the Tibetans (black).
