    The British, Austrian, Russian, Belgian & Japanese flags - some of these countries were of course the enemy of Britain as of August 4th 1914, although declarations of war between some countries had started as early as 28th July.

    Ta, I got it some years ago, it lives in a box tho' it should be on display (I think I could get this one past the wife & onta a wall somewhere unobtrusive 'cos it's pretty), I came across the photos so I thought I'd post them.

    Well . . . of Europeans over China. Depends who "good" and "evil" are in that interaction?

    Chinas flag is illustrated along with those of the other nations, so I don't know whether China is represented by both bird & dragon?

    Whatever the politics of the situation, the bird & dragon still presumably represent the triumph of good over evil, the internationals over China, whatever.
