Stanley’s view on
Red-White-Blue fabric, first appeared in the 1960s,
was used as a cladding for the scaffolding at building sites.
It was durable and waterproof, therefore,
it was later used for producing plastic bags.
Though red-white-blue fabric is generally considered to be tawdry,
it is a metaphor for the spirit of Hong Kong from Stanley’s point of view:
is existence, participation,
devotion and commitment.
is perseverance, diligence and
likes the Hong Kong people of 1960s and
The most important thing is that our
Hong Kong family
should remain unchanged for 50 years:
keep positive, keep going.”
