Another cliché is that France is sex symbol.
I was shopping at Wall-Mart the other day and there I found near the cashier a row of condom with the french flag!
"Olala nom d'une pipe, de saperlipopette! Révolution et grève générale!"
I can not imagine the Chinese people reaction if a foreign company chose to put the Chinese national flag on their condom boxes!
Anyway it is funny to see that french colors are used to sell condom. Also almost no Chinese customers know that this is the french flag.
