On 1 July 1997, Britain returned Hong Kong to China. In a single day, Hongkongers received a brand new identification as Chinese language voters.

Since then, China has been prepared to make sure town’s citizens see themselves as Chinese language.

However emerging tensions between town and the mainland in recent times have created a deep suspicion of China amongst some Hongkongers.

At the twenty fifth anniversary of handover, we ask two Hongkongers born in that historical yr how they view their identification – and what being Hongkonger and Chinese language way to them.
