China flag
China is so interesting. It is one of the oldest civilisations on earth and was originally ruled by imperial dynasties (see: Ming, Tang, Qing, etc).

Marco Polo was the first person to call it China and also popularised the term ‘china’ for porcelain.

It was Mao Zedong, of Little Red Book fame, who first called it The People’s Republic of China in 1949 when the Communist party won the civil war.
