Dye is a global trade, but there is a special place in China for its use in the country’s national emblem.
As the country celebrates the 100th anniversary of the birth of Chairman Mao Zedong, the dyeing of its national flag is one of the symbols of that era.
The red, white and blue colours used for China’s flag are not entirely new, but they are now produced in large quantities, in some cases by companies that have links to the Communist Party of China.
The company that supplies the dye is the China Dye Company, founded in 1926.
The firm has factories in Shanghai and Tianjin, and it also makes a product known as Tie Dye.
The tie dye itself is made from animal wool, which is then spun into a paste and then pressed onto the fabric of the Chinese flag.
A photo taken from a CCTV camera shows a Tie Dyes logo on the Chinese national flag at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, China, December 5, 2018.
It was the first of its kind, and since then, it has been exported to over 150 countries.
In the US, the US Government has issued a directive to the State Department, calling on companies to stop using animal fur and other materials used for the dye, saying they could “cause health and safety hazards to humans and animals”.
The directive was issued in the wake of the killing of a young female pig farmer in Wisconsin, who was killed by her husband for her own piggy bank.
It has been widely criticised as an attempt to silence the farmers’ voices, and also because of the huge amount of animal wool and the way in which it is processed.
The US Government’s move is being seen as a response to the global outcry over the use of animal fur, and the fur industry’s efforts to prevent that use from ever being banned.
However, the tie dye has been controversial for many reasons.
“It’s a symbol of the past, of a time when China was a communist dictatorship, when the country was run by Mao Zedang,” said Peter Moo, an American-based writer and activist who has researched ties between the Chinese and US governments.
“The country is in mourning, and they’re trying to turn that into a symbol, which can be dangerous.”
What are ties between China and the US?
In 2014, the two countries signed a historic free trade agreement with the goal of creating an economically viable Chinese market.
The agreement was hailed as a major victory by the United States and China, which was then in its first year of a long period of economic recovery after the Great Recession of 2008.
But some experts say ties between Beijing and Washington, which are largely based on economic ties, are being strained by concerns over US spying on Chinese leaders.
The trade agreement between the two nations was a huge breakthrough for China.
However, it came at a cost for the US.
It has been accused of interfering in Chinese affairs by conducting secret surveillance, hacking, and other cyber attacks on its political and commercial rivals, and its influence in the United Nations and other organisations.
The United States has repeatedly accused China of violating the treaty by its spying on China’s political and business leaders.
In October 2017, the United Kingdom called on China to end the surveillance of its diplomatic staff, and criticised the US for spying on the Dalai Lama, a Tibetan spiritual leader.
The Dalai Lama has said the US is not allowed to spy on his people.
In June 2018, a US State Department official wrote to Chinese President Xi Jinping, expressing concern about the “increasing levels of cross-border economic and political interference by the US”, and asking him to “immediately halt” the activities of the US-China Business Council (BIC).
The BIC is a business association that represents Chinese companies in the US and has close ties to the Chinese government.
The BIC was founded in the 1990s by a Chinese billionaire, Wang Jianlin, who has been a major backer of the Communist party.
According to the US government, the BIC has engaged in “illegal and illegal trade activities” with China, and is a “foreign agent” for Washington.
China has rejected these allegations, and says the BIS is simply a lobby group.
The Chinese government has also made it clear that it does not support US spying, and has defended the BICS.
“China does not oppose spying on foreign governments and foreign political organizations, and supports the legitimate interests of all states and peoples, including those of other countries,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said last month.
“We support the right of the people to exercise their right of self-determination.”
However, China has been criticised for failing to enforce its own laws, and even for not allowing foreign companies to set up shop in the Chinese market, which has become increasingly popular in recent years.
The tie dye company has had a mixed track record of business dealings in China.
In 2014, it was hit by a $30 million lawsuit filed by the Chinese authorities. In 2015,
