Located in Southeast Asia along the coastline of the Pacific Ocean, China is the world third largest country, after Russia and Canada. With an area of 9.6 million square kilometers and a coastline of 18,000 kilometers, its shape on the China map vector is like a rooster (print the map and colour it you will find the rooster).

My friend interrupted me. “But China has a very specific shape. It is easy to draw. And it looks nothing like what you drew. “China is shaped like a rooster!” she concluded. She drew the rooster on the map, and, sure enough, that was definitely China as its shown in the China map vector. I asked her if this is something she came up with herself. She just laughed. It turns out that everyone in China learns this as a child. It is deep-seated in their minds — this is how they imagine their nation to be shaped.

Looking at the vector map of China, its shape is remarkably similar to that of a rooster. Its head is in the North-Eastern provinces, its magnificent tail include the Xinjiang and Tibet provinces and its wings spread across resource-rich basins of the Yangtze and Yellow River. This rooster belly is in the southeast, and Hainan and Taiwan islands are its legs. A tour guide in a Yangtze River cruise, indicating this similarity, explained: "This shows that Taiwan is definitely an integral part of China. Rooster does not like to stand on one foot for too long."
