Chinese factory found making Tibetan flags: reports

Reports in a Hong Kong newspaper say police in China have discovered a factory making thousands of Tibetan flags for activist groups overseas.

The Ming Pao newspaper in Hong Kong says the Tibetan flags were being made at a factory in the southern province of Guangdong.

It says the factory owner was just fulfilling an order and was not aware of the sensitivity of the flags which are outlawed by the Chinese authorities.

The case reportedly came to light because some workers at the factory recognised the distinctive snow mountain lion design on the flag from watching HK TV.

They checked the significance of the flag on the internet before alerting the authorities.
