Hong Kong / China flag?

Sun Jul 09, 2017 7:14 am

Hi all -

Been a long time, 11 year veteran here but haven't posted in almost 2 years. Checked out the site again today and realized we were given the China flag to use in our profiles... without getting too political, could we get the regular Hong Kong flag back in our profiles? Or was there any rationale behind the usage of the China flag?

Hi Elite

It's on the list to do but not a high priority. The reason it appears as China is that Hong Kong is a part of China even though it is a SAR. Once fixed it will be a region in China listed as a SAR.
