The Tibet Autonomous Region (CN-54), like other regions in China except
Hong Kong and Macao, has no official flag.
Although this is what some users might expect, implementing or
interpreting "[flag]CN54" as the snow-lion flag, associated with the
Free Tibet movement, could be controversial and problematic in the
extreme. You know how China is.
