Since China is so adamant about TAiwan not abandoning the R.O.C. name and national flag and is so keen on reunification. Why doesnt China simply adopt the government and flag of the R.O.C. As its no longer a “communist” country really. Its a capitalist country now.
If China adopted the government and flag of the R.O.C. It would then be harder for TAiwan to NOT reunify wouldnt it?
China spent decades in a competition with the R.O.C. all around the world to be the “real China” and to shut down the KMT run R.O.C. And it wouldnt allow the R.O.C flag to fly anywhere and even to the point of not allowing its planes to be at the same airports as those of the hated KMT run “China Airlines” The “two Chinas” went after worldwide recognition as the REAL CHINA. And finally China won that game, won the right to represent CHINA in the eyes of the world. And the KMT run R.O.C. became a bit of a joke when still declaring itself as the real government of China (which it was at one time but obviously no longer was running the show over there). Finally the R.O.C. government conceded that it no longer has a plan to 'RE take " the mainland and gave up that idea. LEe teng hui was instrumental in that change of taiwans policy.
And now irony of ironies , the CCP is now the staunchest supporter of the KMT. And is a staunch supporter of the R.O.C. flag as well. And irony of ironies, if "China Airlines " changed its name to something without the name of “china” on it, they will probably be banned from cross strait charter flights as well as flights to HONGKONG.
It really IS ironic in my opinon how things have turned out? China spent soo much effort and time to isolate the R.O.C and to win the right to represent China in the eyes of the world. Adn now when Taiwan has been defeated in its quest to “retake the mainland” and in fact wants to divorce itself from China, its forced to make friends with the KMT and to demand that Taiwan not separate from China and not change its flag or name.
