I should point out the biggest appeal of things British, why their flags are popping up around the world: The Westminster System and, specifically, Rule of Law.

The Westminster System: influence comes from below. It's very democratic.
Rule of Law: as opposed to the Roman and Chinese systems of Rule by Law, or the yank system of Rule by Corporations.

Europe is increasingly becoming a Roman Empire type nightmare that people rebelled against so often. China was implementing a Rule of Law by an interesting method: bring in magistrates who had passed judgements on similar cases to give evidence. But... someone sailed a fleet up the Chinese coast, said they can do what they want, bullied and pushed, thus the Chinese response of the Nine Dotted Line, acted the same way to Russia and... here it comes.

NB. Captcha, who on earth calls them 'crosswalks'?

Update, China is expected to be ready for war in 2027.

In the 1800's the yanks sailed a fleet into Tokyo Harbour, pointed their guns at everyone and ordered them to open up to trade. It took fifty years for them to be ready for revenge at the insult, thus Pearl Harbour. Even then they were not quite ready, the politicians pushed it early for their own wants. We know how that worked out, and so must the Chinese. Yanks. If we want peace in the world america should just sink beneath the waves.

British flag in Hong Kong had nothing to do with rule of law, it's the fact the majority of Hong Kong residents want to return to 1997.

And... 1997, Hong Kong was a British Colony.
