Considered by many to be the unofficial flag of the Hong Kong protests, the Black Bauhinia is an adapted version of Hong Kong’s national flag. With the bright red background of the national flag replaced with a dark black, the flag mourns the absence of prosperity and unity in Hong Kong and reflects the dismal conditions the city is facing.
Some versions of the Black Bauhinia depict wilting petals of the national flower, presenting a graphic reflection of the erosion of the rights and freedoms enjoyed under the ‘one country, two systems’ principle.
Made to be a staple t-shirt of your wardrobe the shirts are made of a thicker, heavier cotton, but still soft and comfy. And the double stitching on the neckline and sleeves add more durability.
