       The hand-woven silk hand-woven five-star red flag came into being for the 70th celebration

       Over the past 27 years, Li Yukun and Zhao Xinfeng's contacts have been in the field of national flag laws and propaganda. With the in-depth study of Chinese flag culture and the increase in participation in the world flag science conference, Zhao Xinfeng found that most of the flags in my country's history were made of silk, and the existing Huanglong flag in the Forbidden City was made of silk and embroidery. The flags and commemorative flags of flag organizations of various countries displayed at the World Banner Science Conference are well-made and exquisite, using precious silk weaving craftsmanship. The current national flags in my country are printed on polyester fabrics, and there are few high-end flags for silk collections and displays. Zhao Xinfeng also had the idea of ​​making a five-star red flag with silk weaving technology, but due to various reasons, this idea did not take place.

       Jingwei world, the new wind is mighty, and the new China has entered a new era of changing the world.

Li Yukun agreed to take it seriously. consider. Li Yukun is a well-known contemporary master of Chinese arts and crafts, under the tutelage of Mr. Zhang Ding, Mr. Yuan Yunfu, etc. He has been engaged in the creation of artistic silk carpets for decades.

      The art tapestries "Tianshan" and "Chu Yun" created by him are hung in the Xinjiang Hall and Hubei Hall of the Great Hall of the People in Beijing respectively. He also selected the "Beijing Millennium Landscape" created by him. After careful consideration, Li Yukun replied to Zhao Xinfeng that after improving the silk hand-woven tapestry craftsmanship that originated in the Western Han Dynasty for more than 2,000 years, it can be used to weave the five-star red flag.

       The silk-woven five-star red flag is made of high-quality wild silk as raw material, and is produced through eleven processes such as dyeing and hand weaving. Due to the strong pulling force of wild silk, the weavers tie the knots and then use the rake to strengthen it, so that the silk can be protected for a long time, so the flag can be handed down and treasured. The five-star red flag is woven in strict accordance with the specifications and proportions specified in the manufacturing method. About 430,000 knots are required for a square one square meter. A skilled craftsman with more than ten years of experience will take more than three months and a hundred days to complete. Due to the high cost, Zhao Xinfeng customized nine five-star red flags for the first time (three for each of No. 3, 4, and 5 general five-star red flags) and a flag of the World Flag Association.

The brilliance shows that China in the new era will be more prosperous and boundless. In order to witness the historic moment of weaving, Zhao Xinfeng went to Rugao to participate in the weaving ceremony.
