The Twelve Symbols national emblem (Chinese: 十二章國徽 ) was the state emblem of the Empire of China (1915?6) and the Republic of China from 1913-1928. It is based on the ancient Chinese symbols of the Twelve Ornaments.

 

Marshal Chang Tso-lin, Tuchun of Manchuria.

Zhang Zuolin (張作霖; (1875?928) was the warlord ofManchuria from 1916 to 1928 (see Warlord Era in China). He successfully invaded China proper in October 1924 in the Second Zhili-Fengtian War. He gained control of Peking, including China's internationally recognized government, in April 1926. The economy of Manchuria, the basis of Zhang's power, was overtaxed by his adventurism and collapsed in the winter of 1927-1928. Zhang was defeated by the Nationalists under Chiang Kai-shek in May 1928. He was killed by a bomb planted by a Japanese Kwantung Army officer on 4 June 1928.[2] Although Zhang had been Japan's proxy in China, Japanesemilitarists were infuriated by his failure to stop the advance of the Nationalists.


Zhang was fiercely anti-Republican and supported the restoration of the Qing dynasty. His nicknames include the "Old Marshal" (大帥, P: D鄐hu鄆, W: Ta-shuai), "Rain Marshal" (雨帥, P: Yǔshu鄆, W: Y?shuai) and "Mukden Tiger". The American press referred to him as "Marshal Chang Tso-lin, Tuchun of Manchuria."
