HONG KONG — The Standing Committee of China’s congress has passed amendments to a law that will criminalize the intentional insulting of the national flag and emblem, after anti-government protesters last year desecrated the Chinese flag.

According to the newly amended National Flag and National Emblem Law, which will take effect on Jan. 1, those who intentionally burn, mutilate, paint, deface or trample the flag and emblem in public will be investigated for criminal responsibility.
