I was wondering if this autonomous region has a flag of its own and also if there is a map we can add to the article? Londium 22:27, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Chinese province/city/county/ do not have flag.--刻意(Kèyì) 19:24, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
In the Soviet Union autonomous regions had their own flags, but that tradition was never adopted in the PRC.David Straub (talk) 17:25, 10 July 2010 (UTC)


I am notifying readers that I have taken the liberty of adding a reference to a discussion in my book, Through the Jade Gate to Rome (2009), establishing that Tashkurgan was known as 'Puli' during the Later Han Dynasty. There was no reference previously backing this statement in the article and a reference was needed (an many others are still needed for other assertions in the article). The discussion in my book contains a number of quotes from recognised published scholars which establishes that Han 'Puli' referred to the region of modern Tashkurgan, I believe, beyond question, so I thought I was justified to refer to it. I hope this is not seen as self-promotion.John Hill (talk) 08:29, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

Anti-Russian sentiment among Sarikoli (Tajiks of Xinjiang) in 1900[edit]

In response to increased Tsarist Russian activity in Sarikol around 1900, the local Sarikoli begs and Sarikoli people feared that Russia was going to annex the region and take it away from China, fearing molestation at the hands of the Russians, they wanted to flee to Yarkand. They did not believe the official explanation that Russia was only concerned with the postal service in the area.
