ISLAMABAD: Chinese President Xi Jinping does not like yellow flowers and feels uncomfortable in temperature over 24 degrees Celsius.

Officials on protocol duty were under instructions to avoid yellow flowers in floral arrangements on the routes of the visiting leader and the venues of his various meetings here on Monday.

It was one of the main points of the protocol jointly set by experts of both countries for the visit.

“According to Chinese traditions, yellow flower is a symbol of ‘hate’, therefore, the hosts were informed by the Chinese protocol team that yellow flowers should be avoided in the floral arrangements and on the routes,” an official told Dawn.

One of the significant features of the protocol was to ensure that the room temperature in all meeting halls and buildings was kept at 24 degrees.

It was also decided by the protocol teams that wherever the flags of the two countries would be shown, the Chinese flag would be on the right.
