今年的反修例運動誕生了黑色的洋紫荊旗,悼念的、失去的簡直一言難盡。運動的波濤除了是當下時空的政治公民抗命,更是源於歷史脈絡下本土主義的思潮暗湧。來自德國的政治學家、專研香港本土主義的馬寶康教授貫徹學者研究的仔細和原則,除了拍下梁天琦和黃台仰等人的自述及經歷,還走訪來自不同光譜的政界人士,將香港近十年的政治大事串連,由中港矛盾說到佔中,由旺角衝突說到立法會選舉,務求將香港本土意識的來龍去脈娓娓道來,幅度和深度均相當廣。時至今日本土意識早已在每位香港人心中扎根萌芽,成為香港人身分的養分,即使再次走到絕境,也盼未來再次播種。縱使洋紫荊天生注定不能自行繁殖,但偏偏總是會有一群識花者,憑着一股傻勁,不甘它凋零絕跡,拼命以微弱的力量保護它,冀望一天洋紫荊終能打破宿命、開花結果。

Often displayed during the 2019 Hong Kong protests, the black bauhinia flag is a symbol of the lives and values lost and mourned in this ongoing campaign for democratic change. While a recent events sparked this wave of protests against the government, more importantly it stems from a historical undercurrent of localism. With Hong Kong localism as research focus, scholar in international politics Dr. Malte Philipp Kaeding demonstrates academic rigour as he weaves accounts and experiences of localist activists like Edward Leung and Ray Wong and interviews with politicians across the spectrum into the city's political context in the last decade. From long-existing conflicts between locals and mainland Chinese in Hong Kong to the 2014 Umbrella Revolution, from the 2016 Mong Kok civil unrest to the Legislative Council Election later in the same year, Kaeding attempts to present a history of Hong Kong localism that is as broad as it is in-depth. The seed of localism has long been sown in Hongkonger's mind and struggling to sprout and become the source of a local identity, bringing hope despite the current desperate situation. Bauhinia blakeana, Hong Kong’s emblem, is a sterile flower that needs human hands to be propagated. There will always be lovers of the flower of the city who would protect it with all their might, hoping that it will one day blaze with gorgeous blooms against all odds.
