      Hóngqí [Red Flag] was the Chinese language theoretical journal of the Communist Party of China from 1958 to 1988. Depending on the year, it usually appeared monthly or twice-monthly. During the early-middle part of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution its publication was suspended (from December 1967 to July 1968), but after it resumed publication it again became an extremely important revolutionary leadership force during the rest of the Maoist socialist era, along with the newspapers People’s Daily and People’s Liberation Army Daily.

      Hóngqí was given its name by Mao and the Chinese characters used for the journal’s masthead were in Mao’s calligraphy. Its first editor was Mao’s secretary, Chen Boda. It was the successor to the earlier CCP theoretical journal Xuexi [Study]. The capitalist-roaders replaced the by-then already totally revisionist Hóngqí journal with a new twice-monthly journal, Qiúshì [“Seeking Truth” (Ha!)], in July 1988.

      Unless otherwise noted, the issues below are scans of the original Chinese language magazine. The scans are mostly of medium quality, but should be generally legible for readers of Chinese. There are a few extraneous circles and other markings on many pages; our apologies.

      We also have a separate web page for issues of Hóngqí in the years 1977-1988, which were published by the capitalist-roaders after Mao's death. So far all we have there are English versions of issues from 1982-1983 translated and published by the Joint Publications Research Service of the U.S. government.
