It continues to amaze me just how popular the British flag is in China. You see it everywhere - clothes, electric bikes, notebooks, bags, stickers, etc. Not only is it more prominent than, say, the American or Russian flags, but you see it more than the Chinese flag too. Some say it's because the shape is the same as the Chinese character for "rice". Others say it's just a cool and interesting pattern. Certainly the UK is as popular a foreign country as any, despite our historical double-dealing with the Chinese.
