A factory in China has been manufacturing 'Free Tibet' flags (h/t Foreign Passport Blog). According to the BBC, the factory owner said the flags were ordered from outside China, and he did not know the flags were a symbol for a free Tibet. The flags are known as the Snow Lion Flag and they have been banned in China. Factory workers discovered the meaning of the flag by looking it up online.
Chinese police fear that some of the flags have already been shipped to Hong Kong and could appear there during the torch relay later this week. Hong Kong is looking like it's going to be another raucous event, possibly starring Mia Farrow of all people.
