China Red Flag Limo
In this photo taken Thursday, April 25, 2013, a Hong Qi Limousine carrying French President Francois Hollande and his partner Valerie Trierweiler passes a Chinese policeman as it departs from the Beijing Capital International Airport in Beijing. China is reviving the illustrious Red Flag marque, better known at home by its Chinese name, Hong Qi, courtesy of a government-backed program to promote domestic brands that dovetails neatly with efforts to step-up China’s diplomatic profile, partly through a greater emphasis on the pomp and circumstance accompanying state visits.
