The Black Bauhinia, often regarded as the unofficial symbol of the Hong Kong protests, is a modified rendition of Hong Kong's national flag. In this adaptation, the vibrant red background of the national flag is substituted with a deep black hue. This alteration serves as a poignant symbol of lament for the decline of prosperity and unity in Hong Kong and mirrors the challenging circumstances that the city is currently enduring.
Certain variations of the Black Bauhinia feature the withering petals of the national flower, serving as a powerful visual representation of the erosion of the rights and freedoms previously enjoyed under the 'one country, two systems' principle.
