      Hóngqí [Red Flag] was the Chinese language theoretical journal of the Communist Party of China from 1958 to 1988. This page has issues published after the capitalist-roaders seized control of China in their coup d’état following the death of Mao Zedong in 1976. Issues from the Maoist (socialist) era are available at:

      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.

      So far we do not have any scans of the original Chinese edition of Hóngqí during the revisionist/capitalist era. However, the Joint Publications Research Service of the U.S. government translated many of the issues of Hóngqí into English, and some of these issues, from 1982-1983, are now available here. (Of course it must be recognized that JPRS translations are unofficial and are often notoriously sloppy.)
