CRBC 華潤銀行

CRBC 華潤銀行
This is a small bank called CRBC, which is the short name for China Resource Bank Co.

China has a love-hate relationship with its written language. Traditional Chinese had been in use for thousands of years until the 1950s, when Communist China developed "simplified Chinese" to help educate China's illiterate masses. Alas, a hastily-thought out language is not a well-developed one.

Strangely, traditional Chinese is regarded as more educated, sophisticated and cultural these days. Take for example, this bank's name in simplified Chinese would be 华润, but the bank chose to use traditional Chinese 華潤 (hence against official policy) in its logo.
