I just went to see the movie Fearless with Jet Li
which tells (quite loosely apparently) the life of Huo
Yuanjia, founder of the Chin Woo Athletic Association.
A scene of the founding of the association (around 1910) show the included flag
I have been unable to find this flag online but have found 2 others (a LOB and a white flag with stars) both of which feature the same colours.
Three hypotheses regarding this flag:
while number 3 is always possible, the fact that the
logo and other flags feature the same colours as well
as the fact that the fact is presented in such a way
as to imply that the viewer should recognise it (the
Chinese one at least) makes me think it might be real.
