Kuomintang Membership Card

Thumbnail :

Subject :Kuomintang Membership Card
Published By : None 
Location : Malaya
Estimated Year : 1947
Media Type : Ephemera
Source : Ian Anderson, Ipoh
Remark : The pictures show a membership card of the Kuomintang Party (the National Peoples Party). The Kuomintang was founded in the early 1900's by Sun Yat-Sen and Song Jiaoren, after the Xinhai Revolution in China.

The picture on the left shows the front of the membership card. The flag of the Kuomintang (left of the picture) is made up of a 12-ray sun set on a blue background; 12 being the 12 traditional Chinese hours of the day, hence symbolising the spirit of progress.

The picture on the right shows the inside of the membership card; with a picture of Kuomintang founder Sun Yat-sen (right) and a party member (left). The name of this member is unknown to us, while the year this card was issued is a rough estimation.
