  China Police Insignia

 

China

The coat of arms of the present-day Chinese police bears an illustration of the Great Wall of China, since the force serves and protects the nation just as the Great Wall once did. The insignia also has 5 stars, i.e. a large one and four smaller ones, representing the Communist Party and the four castes or social classes as defined in Maoism.
