The CAS has finally answered me about the colour of the Bahunia flower atop its emblem-- blue or red?

The reply is copied below:

Thank you for your e-mail of 3 August.

You may wish to know that the bahunia was introduced to our emblem after the Handover at 1997 which was blue in colour. We have introduced a red scheme to the bahunia in early 2003 which is now becoming the official emblem of the Civil Aid Service.

We intend to replace the old emblems in our premises, including the Hong Kong Training Centre. Due to stringent financial resources, we decided to replace the emblems in phases when our premises are undergoing regular maintenance.

That means, there are 2 emblems used by the CAS post-handover, Between 1 July 1997 to 2003 one with a blue bahunia is used, while from this year one with a red bahunia is used.
