Bauhinia Blakeana

Bauhinia Blakeana
Equipment: Canon 30D, 24-105 mm f4 L IS

Bauhinia blakeana was adopted as the floral emblem of Hong Kong by the Urban Council in 1965. Since 1997 it has become the floral emblem for the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China, and appears on its flag and its coins; its Chinese name has also been frequently shortened as 紫荊 (洋 means "foreign" in Chinese, and some may consider this would be deemed inappropriate by the PRC government). A statue of the plant has been erected in Golden Bauhinia Square in Hong Kong. - quote form Wikipedia
