The flag was designed by Wang Guolun (王国伦).
The symbol on the flag is made up of three green lines and five red ones.
The green lines are in the shape of C, which stands for ‘chengshi’ – the Chinese word for ‘city’. They also symbolise running tracks and city streets.
The red lines symbolise high-rises in cities.
