The national flag of the New Federate State of China features golden patterns on blue background, with patterns of heptangular stars designed a large one in the center surrounded by 48 small ones. The following is an attempt to interpret the flag from a biblical perspective in terms of numbers, colors, and shapes, respectively.
1. The number
The national flag consists of heptangular stars.
Seven is a popular number in the Whistleblowers’Movement, for example, Mr. Guo is the seventh child of his family, fellow fighters call him Brother Seven, Mr. Guo initiated the Whistleblowers’ Movement in 2017, and the guiding principle of the Whistleblowers’ Movement is Mr. Guo’s seven creeds.
In the original Bible, seven has the meaning of Pledge and completion, also representing rest, with the seventh day being the Sabbath, no working; the seventh year being the Sabbatical year, no plowing and sowing. The number seven appears in the Bible at a very high frequency and Seba, the word as names of people and locations, also has been mentioned seven times in the original context.
In addition, we all know Mr. Guo has eight brothers, and he is the seventh in the lineup. King David in the Bible was also the seventh child, while in some Bible versions, Jesse had eight sons, so maybe one had died early.
“Jesse was the father of Eliab his firstborn; the second son was Abinadab, the third Shimea (“Shemiah” means “Shammah”, see 1 Samuel 16:9), the fourth Nethanel, the fifth Raddai, the sixth Ozem and the seventh David.”(1 Chronicles 2:13-15)
“Now David was the son of an Ephrathite named Jesse, who was from Bethlehem in Judah. Jesse had eight sons.” (1 Samuel 16:9)
Also, Adam, the first ancestor of mankind, had two seventh great-grandsons, Lamech descended from Cain and Enoch descended from Seth. They were two opposite extremes, Lamech acting brutal and Enoch walking with God. This has also mirrored the present situation, where the wicked are powerful, but God also has raised persons like Mr. Guo to fight against them.
(2) One, forty-eight
The design: a large one in the center, and 48 small ones around it.
Before the completion of Solomon’s Temple, the Tabernacle was the central of the Israelites. The Tabernacle had forty-eight tall standing boards made from acacia wood overlaid in gold, the main part of the Tabernacle’s support system. The Holy of Holies in the Tabernacle housed the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord. The Ark of the Covenant was also made from acacia wood and wrapped in gold.
The Israelites had twelve tribes and among them, the tribe of Levi was dedicated to the service of the Lord God, having forty-eight cities that were scattered throughout all tribes.
Therefore, the number forty-eight symbolizes mission and guardianship. The small stars on the national flag can be seen as every fellow fighter or those organizations for our fighters, such as farms, and the large star in the center represents our mutual values and goals.
(3) forty-nine, fifty
All the individual stars on the flag, the large one adding the smaller ones, are altogether forty-nine, and if the cross shape composed by those stars on the flag is also considered as a big star, there are fifty stars in total on the flag.
From the day when the first bundle is offered as a shaking sacrifice, this counts as seven Sabbaths, and adding one day, that is forty-nine days to plus one day, which is Pentecost. The first fruits are Christ, and Pentecost is the coming of the Holy Spirit. Christians are also like the first fruits in all God’s creations.
“Count off seven sabbath years—seven times seven years—so that the seven sabbath years amount to a period of forty-nine years Consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you; each of you is to return to your family property and to your own clan. “（Leviticus 25）
“but at the age of fifty, they must retire from their regular service and work no longer.” (Numbers 8:25)
To sum up, the number fifty symbolizes satisfaction, restoration, release, joy, and celebration.
There is no conception of the number seventy on the flag, but the debut of the flag was in the year of 70th Anniversary of the Founding of the People’s Republic of China by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
After seventy years of Israelite’s captivity, Babylon, the marauder, was destroyed and the Israelites were able to return to their country to rebuild the temple.
Although CCP has not been exterminated in 2020, the New Federate State of China has repeatedly verified by the helps from the GOD and CCP will definitely be eradicated! But just as Daniel confessed his own sins and the sins of his Israel nation before the God and pleaded for prayers, we should likewise be persistent in prayer before God.
Gold is the color of gold, and gold has to be refined.
Chinese culture has always attempted to cultivate saints to achieve a Great Harmony by the reign of saints. It has not been enough to be ruled by feudal imperialism for thousands of years, and also has been deceived by communism. Now, under the control of the Communist Party, the Chinese nation is a mass of bruises, and the Chinese soil is devastated everywhere, which is the result of the fact that the Chinese as a whole has boasted before God to only rely on manpower. This time the Chinese nation has endured the most brutal hurt and produced the most thoroughly repentance. The Buddha’s hand of Henan Yuda Palace Hotel can also be sign as the hand of the Chinese nation seeking help from God.
“When famine or plague comes to the land, or blight or mildew, locusts or grasshoppers, or when an enemy besieges them in any of their cities, whatever disaster or disease may come, and when a prayer or plea is made by anyone among your people Israel—being aware of the afflictions of their own hearts, and spreading out their hands toward this temple—then hear from heaven, your dwelling place. Forgive and act; deal with everyone according to all they do, since you know their hearts (for you alone know every human heart),so that they will fear you all the time they live in the land you gave our ancestors.” (1 Kings 8:37-40)
And all the fellow fighters of the New Federate State of China are the refined gold.
“But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.” (Job 23:10)
We will not only lead the resurgence of Chinese nation, but also realize the worldwide peace, as what Mr. Guo has said.
Blue is the color of the sky, as well as the color of the sea. Blue symbolizes calmness, rationality, wisdom, generosity, tolerance, peace, and: conservatism.
After being brainwashed for many years by the CCP, many people consider the word “conservatism” a synonym of Ignorance and fossil. In fact, the word conservatism can be a good word for protecting and guarding the most important values. The only issue for the Chinese is what we want to conserve?
The overall proportion of the national flag is 3:2. The Solomon Temple with 20 elbows in width and 30 elbows in height is the identical proportion when the national flag in hanging position.
” Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. “ (Daniel 12:3)
The small stars could symbolize individual fellow fighters or the institutions formed by fighters, such as farms. We strive individually as well as unite together, to guard our mutual values and interests.
(3) The integral pattern: star link
The two sets of star links formed by the 48 small stars can also represent the star link of WIFI, symbolizing the Chinese breaking through the blockade and gaining freedom.
(4). Integral pattern: the Chinese character “zhong” (meaning of center)
This character symbolizes China and the Chinese.
(5). Integral pattern: the Chinese character “guo”
The shape of the character of “Guo”, Mr. Guo’s surname, in the Chinese oracle bone script is another kind of inscription of Mr. Guo’s achievements.
Oracle bone script: Guo (Source: Six-Style Calligraphy Dictionary, page 2117)
And this way of showing the character Guo with the four arrows pointing out to four different directions hints the expression in the Bible as the following:
“Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south. All peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring.” (Genesis 28:14)
The Whistleblowers’ Movement led by Mr. Guo has indeed saved the world, and may God bless Mr. Guo as the way to bless Abraham.
From this perspective, it is also in line with the description for the highest deal in the Chinese book “the Great Learning” “: to understand virtue, to close to the people (same as “new”, i.e., renew), and to achieve at the highest goodness.” That is, to understand the truth, to spread the truth, and to bring the whole world to a state of supreme goodness.
In addition, the integral pattern on the national flag can also be seen as a flower with four petals. On one hand, the flower reminds people of the glory and beauty from all God’s creation, as
“Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.” (Matthew 6:29ff)
and on the other hand, it also reminds people of the short of life, and the contemplation the meaning of eternity.
“The grass withers and the flowers fall, because the breath of the Lord blows on them. Surely the people are grass.” (Isaiah 40:7)
Last but not least, the shape of the integral pattern also means a cross. The cross is a symbol of Christianity because Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose again on the third day, Sunday, the first day of a week. “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”(Acts 4:12)
