Stand with HK

Oct 6, 2019

What’s all the fuss about? This picture represents HKer’s fight for democracy, told through the lovely logo.

It’s made of 5 ‘人’ (people), suggesting solidarity.


They also look like ☂, one of the classic icons of the movement & the Umbrella Movement 5 yrs ago.

There are 5 of them to represent each of our original ‘5 demands’ (list has grown since then)

We’ve seen it before in my thread on the bauhinia. Flattened out like below, it looks like a morning glory, & harks back to our crowd-sourced anthem, #GloryToHongKong

But the globe shape for the logo is important. It shows all the people of the world, hand-in-hand, united. Because the fight for human rights, for dignity, for democracy is universal.

Fight for freedom. #StandWithHongKong
