    But I get what you mean and I guess the concerning thing is that the law is so vague and it really depends on the authorities interpretation (and how much they hate you).
    When there are European tourists again, I suspect we could have a fun game of selling T-Shirts with banned slogans in Chinese on them. Wonderful to watch the police decide if they should arrest the white foreigners.

    Yeah, would artistic "I am lost in Hong Kong" T-shirts need to be modified to "I am lost in Hong Kong, China which is an inalienable part of the one and only China"?

    Would such shirts be permitted in black or yellow?

    And when foreigners get their trademark tattoo of Chinese characters of political slogans which they don't understand.
