A Western Flag for the Chinese Zodiac: The Year of the Monkey

The flag for the Chinese Year of the Monkey features a purple flag with a Western symbol.  The Western Monkey Symbol is a crescent moon with a line through it.  The Americas have their own native monkeys that differ from the Old World too!  The great thing about New World Monkeys from America is that American Monkeys can hold on to tree limbs with their tails.  Old world Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Thai, Lao, Cambodian and Burmese Monkeys can not.
