Two (fictional) Chinese flags

[China-Honk Kong dollar flag] by Antonio Martins

I remember there was a (black and white) comic book published soon after Tienanmen showed two flags. One was a 'proposed' Hong Kong SAR flag, which was the same as the PRC flag. excepted that, while the big star was retained to show Chinese leadership, the four small stars were replaced by dollar signs, to show that "Regardless of class, if you have money, you're fine".

The other flag, for the PRC, had the five stars replaced by skulls and crossbones.

Tienamen Square black flag

[China-Tienanmen black flag] by Antonio Martins

Do you remember after the so-called "People's Liberation Army" of China attacked pro-democracy demonstrators in Tianamen Square back on June 4, 1989, that some protestors carried a flag that looked like the Red Chinese flag, except that the flag was black, the stars were red and there were streaks of blood smeared from them?

I do not remember seeing this flag in connection with Tianamen Square. But I do remember seeing a flag of this description, black with red stars, but without the streaks of blood, flying in the Chinatown section of New York City about a month after the Tianamen Square massacre.

Two photos of a motorcyclist making a tour through half of Asia shows him with flags of Pakistan and China (weird variant!) at the Kunjarab pass, the border between Pakistan and China.
