Dounan town is close to Kunming, Yunnan’s capital. The whole region is famous as China’s flower capital. There is a lot of business going on, and I think that purpose of those two flags is mainly commercial.
Roman Kogovsek, 19 June 2005

The success of cut flowers as a new product was due to the initiative of farmers in a village with 1,619 households called Dounan which used to grow vegetables in the suburb of Kunming, the capital of Yunnan Province.

The Dounan Flower Market in suburban Kunming is the largest in China. It opens from four o'clock in the morning till 10 at night. Every day, it receives more than 2,000 flower dealers from all parts of the country. The daily sales reach 1.2 million yuan from the 1.4 million sprays of fresh cut-flower.

Flag Displays

Chinese seem to be crazy for flags, although there are no regional flags. But every shopping mall or company have a own flag in front of their entrance.

Another very popular tradition is to decorate the shop, office, school or sth else with monochrome flags in different colours for any celebrations. Normally, there are blue, red, yellow, green and pink flags together like in this picture.
