Description of the Flag

The flag says "Christianity", which in Hong Kong means Protestantism, but not specifically Baptist (I have confused the flag with a similarly-shaped, non-flag emblem commonly seen in Hong Kong's Baptist churches). The cross on the flag extends to the sides of the flag, rather like the Danish national flag. It is flown by fishing boats (and in the case I have recently seen, a harbourside fishmonger) to indicate the owners' Christian faith.
