The Tibetan Independence Movement, or Free Tibet, is a movement for the independence of Tibet.
Ever since the People’s Liberation Army of China invaded Tibet in 1950, the country and people’s identity has changed dramatically. In fact, the Chinese Government continues introducing policies by which Tibetan culture , language and resources are being irreversibly damaged.
Although the 14th Dalai Lama is regarded as the religious leader and a key figure of Tibet, he does not entirely support the cause and has proposed a sort of autonomy to coexist and avoid further conflicts with Chinese authority.
As one may notice it reminds us of the Japanese Rising Sun flag. The flag was, as a matter of fact, designed with the help of Aoki Bunkyo, a Japanese Buddhist priest. The flag was adopted as a logo by Free Tibet, in the 1960so. This was especially done to encourage pan-Tibetan nationalism. The organization couldn’t have chosen a better logo as it encourages Tibetans outside Tibet to embrace their culture and origins. It’s also very colorful and intrinsic design, easily recalling the audience’s attention.
