Blue logo on white. The logo is a thick ring with an "H" inside, linked to the ring by semi-circular shapes. Gives a distinctive yin-yang flavour.

Quite dubious, this flag can be described as a horizontal bicolour of dark red and blue with three white horizontal stripes dividing it into four equilateral fields.
