Huang (Chinese: ) was a vassal state that existed during the Zhou dynasty until the middle Spring and Autumn period. In 648 BC it was annexed by the state of Chu.

Its capital was in present-day Huangchuan County, Henan province, where ruins of the city have been excavated. Archaeologists have discovered the tombs of Huang Jun Meng (黄君孟; Meng, Lord of Huang) and his wife, with numerous bronzes, jades, and other artifacts.[1]
