This is one of the earliest posters issued by the Hong Kong Tourist Association and as with many of their posters was made available to inbound airlines to promote Hong Kong as a tourist destination. With the symbolic use of a Union Jack flag on the rickshaw passenger's parasol, B.O.A.C. was likely the only airline which would borrow this design from the HKTA.
