The Hong Kong City-State Autonomy Movement (also known as the Hong Kong Autonomy Movement or HKAM) is an internet-organized political movement which has been very vocal on street protests in Hong Kong since July 2012. While not necessarily advocating complete separation from the People's Republic of China, HKAM has adopted as its emblem the "Dragon and Lion Hong Kong Flag", which is navy blue with the 1959-1997 Colonial Hong Kong coat-of-arms, modified only with the word "Hong Kong" in red Chinese writing at the centre of the shield. They do not even bother to remove the crowns from the lions' heads!

The Flag

This use of this flag, along with the 1959-1997 Colonial Hong Kong flag on street protests in recent years, has caused considerable consternation in the PRC government, and no doubt much bemusement to outside observers. Suffice to say that these reflect the complex love-hate relationships Hong Kongers have with their colonial past.
