By George, its time to raise the flag! – Telegraph

Saint George is the pride of England’s throne,
From east to west he holds his own
And none may dare in their pride to say,
That Saint George’s Cross has seen its day
Saint George for merry England

When battle clouds at evening frown,
And the sun of peace in shade goes down,
The meteor flag shall its radiance cast
Lit up by the light of the gorgeous Past
Saint George for merry England


This is a famous saying by Mao Zedong and can often be seen in Chinese schools. A literal translation is ‘Good good study, day day up’ , a better translation would be ‘Study hard, keep improving’.

This is also an example of Mao’s distinctive calligraphy.
