HONG KONG-CHINA-BRITAIN-POLITICS-HISTORY-CULTURE-HANDOVER

In this picture taken on May 24, 2017, Mingo, a 27-year-old bar manager, poses while wearing a T-shirt with a British national flag design in Hong Kong. When asked whether he prefers Hong Kong before or after the 1997 handover from British to Chinese rule, he replied, 'Before 1997, definitely. Because the Chinese government is taking over Hong Kong now. It's becoming part of China. I love the UK, that's why I bought the shirt. UK is my second family as I studied there for a long time. That's why I love the flag.' From its rattling trams and racecourses to its legal system and the ubiquitous consumption of Spam, Britain's colonial legacy still resonates through Hong Kong. But almost 20 years since the city was handed back to China under a deal that made it semi-autonomous, colonial emblems have become a symbol of protest. / AFP PHOTO / Anthony WALLACE / TO GO WITH Hong Kong-China-Britain-politics-history-culture-handover, FEATURE by Laura MANNERING (Photo credit should read ANTHONY WALLACE/AFP/Getty Images)
