    The area now known as Hong Kong became an important trading region and a significant strategic location for the Chinese mainland during the Tang and Song dynasties. These populated townships or villages had never been collectively known as Hong Kong before the British administration. The area began to attract the attention of China and the rest of the world again in the 19th century, when it was ceded to Britain after the Opium Wars. Hong Kong's earliest recorded non-Asian visitor was the Portuguese mariner Jorge Álvares who arrived in 1513. Álvares began trading with the Chinese, and the Portuguese continued to make periodic trade stops at various locations along the coast.

    Tea, silk, and other Asian luxury goods were introduced in Europe by the Portuguese, and by the mid-18th century these items were in high demand, particularly tea. The British, to redress their net outflow of payments to China for tea and to force China to conduct relations like other states, invaded China, winning the First Opium War in 1841. During the war, Hong Kong Island was first occupied by the British, and then formally ceded by the Qing Dynasty of China in 1842 under the Treaty of Nanking.

    Hong Kong entered a dark age during the Japanese Occupation of World War II, which lasted for three years and eight months. Many Hong Kongers were executed by the Japanese army during the war. There was a significant resistance movement most notably on Lantau Island. After their defeat by the allied forces, the Japanese surrendered on 15 August 1945. The port was quickly re-opened and welcomed a mass migration of Chinese refugees in 1949 from the civil war. Many refugees escaped to Hong Kong fearing the new Communist government in China.

    Hong Kong had been a trade port ever since the British occupation, but its position as an entrepot declined greatly after the United Nations ordered a trade embargo against the People's Republic of China as a result of the Korean War. In response, a textile industry was established, taking advantage of the new pool of workers from China who were willing to work for almost any wage. During this period, the economy grew extremely rapidly. Towards the 1970s, Hong Kong began to move away from the textile industry and develop its financial and banking economy. This led to even greater growth, and Hong Kong quickly became one of the wealthiest territories in the world. Its position as an entrepot was revived when the Open Door Policy was adopted by the PRC in the late 1970s under Deng Xiaoping.

    Flag of Hong Kong before 1 July 1997Pursuant to an agreement known as the Sino-British Joint Declaration, signed by the People's Republic of China and the United Kingdom on 19 December 1984, the whole territory of Hong Kong under British colonial rule became the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the PRC on 1 July 1997. In the Joint Declaration, the PRC promised that under the "One Country, Two Systems" policy proposed by Deng Xiaoping, the socialist economic system in mainland China would not be practised in Hong Kong, and Hong Kong's previous capitalist system and life-style would remain unchanged for at least 50 years, or until 2047. Hong Kong would enjoy a high degree of autonomy in all matters except diplomatic affairs and national defence.

    香 港 名 的 由 來

    1)因 海 盜 香 姑 盤 據 香 港 島 得 名

    據 古 老 傳 說 , 清 朝 嘉 慶 年 間 , 有 海 盜 林 某 與 其 妻 香 姑 橫 行 於 伶 仃 洋 一 帶 , 後 為 清 海 軍 將 領 李 長 庚 擊 敗, 林 某 逃 死 並 死 於 台 灣 , 香 姑 則 率 餘 眾 佔 據 港 島 , 後 人 因 而 稱 之 為「香港島」。

    但 據 史 籍 記 載 , 清 代 並 沒 有 名 叫 香 姑 的 海 盜 , 本 港 各 區 亦 未 有 發 現 任 何 相 關 的 史 蹟 , 加 上 中 國 人 向 來 痛 恨 盜 賊 , 理 應 不 會 以 盜 名 為 一 島 之 總 名 , 故 此 說 實 不 足 信 。

    2)因 島 上 紅 香 爐 山 得 名

    據 古 老 傳 說 , 今 日 銅 鑼 灣 天 后 廟 前 的 紅 香 爐 , 是 從 遠 地 漂 來 而 停 在 廟 前 沙 灘 上 。 時 人 遂 將 它 放 置 在 廟 前 , 並 稱 廟 後 山 峰 為 紅 香 爐山 , 廟 前 之 海 灣 為 紅 香 爐 港 。 其 後 漸 演 變 為 全 島 的 全 名 , 稱 為 香 港 島 。

    但 據 《 新 安 縣 志 》 中 的 地 圖 所 載 , 島 上 既 有 紅 香 爐 山 , 亦 有 香 港 村 , 二 者 既 同 時 存 在 , 地 點 亦 有 別 , 故 「 香 港 」 之 名 實 非 由 紅 香 爐 山 演 變 而 來 。

    3)因 本 港 盛 產 莞 香 而 得 名

    本 港 自 明 代 起 已 是 盛 產 莞 香 的 地 方 。 當 時 , 每 年 由 東 莞 南 部 , 新 安 與 本 港 所 產 製 的 香 品 , 常 在 尖 沙 頭 ( 今 日 的 尖 沙 咀 ) 用 小 艇 運 至 石 排 灣 , 再 改 用 艚 船 轉 運 往 廣 州 。 因 此 時 人 將 運 送 香 品 的 石 排 灣 東 北 岸 ( 今 日 的 香 港仔 海 灣 ) 稱 為 「 香 港 」 , 意 即 運 香 販 香 的 港 口 , 英人 稱 為 "Fragrant Harbour" , 即 芬 芳 的 港 口 。 位 於 港 灣 畔 的 村 落 , 遂 名 香 港 村 。

    康 熙 初 年 時 曾 因 海 盜 猖 獗 而 行 遷 界 令 將 村 民 盡 徙 內 地 , 康 熙 八 年 復 界 後 , 居 民 遷 回 重 建 香 港 村 , 建 圍 牆 以 自 保 , 因 此 又 名 香 港 圍 , 今 稱 黃 竹 坑 舊 圍 。

    1. Hong Kong's English name is derived from two Chinese characters, Heung and Gong ("fragrant harbour"). Originally this was only the name of a small settlement near Aberdeen, the main fishing and entry port for pre-colonial Hong Kong Island. Some historians suggest Hong Kong's Chinese name was inspired by its export of fragrant incense.

    The explanation for Kowloon's name is even more romantic. In Chinese, the peninsula's name is Kow Lung ("Nine Dragons"). It is believed this dates back as far as eight centuries to Emperor Ping, one of two boy-emperors of the doomed Sung Dynasty whose court fled to Hong Kong. He is said to have counted eight mountains in the area, and decided to name it "Eight Dragons" based on the belief that a dragon inhabits every mountain. His tally was corrected by a quick-witted courtier who pointed out that as emperors were also believed to be dragons, there were nine dragons - Emperor Ping being the ninth.

    The origins and historical validity of the legend are still widely debated. An ancient rock inscription, which lies in a small park, in Kowloon City, by the edge of Hong Kong's former International Airport, confirms the boy-emperor's traveling palace was in Hong Kong.

    2. {Hong Kong} acquiring fame, its {the spice} has closely . The spice is one is solid , some likes a sandalwood dead wood root which congeals by the fragrant wood fluid juice becomes, is the multi- spices raw material.

    明代的香港地區在商貿上已漸漸蓬勃起來,人口亦有所增長,更成為海防要地。當時,明代在這裡設防,主要是為了防禦南中國海一帶的海盜、日本來的「倭寇」、葡萄牙和荷蘭的侵略者。明朝中葉,廣東沿海有三路巡海備倭官軍。其中的中路「自東莞縣南頭城,出佛堂門、十字門、冷水角諸海澳」。佛堂門在香港地區,該地區顯然屬於中路的防禦範圍。萬曆年間的《廣東沿海圖》中已標有香港以及赤柱、黃泥涌、尖沙咀等地名。此外﹐香港在明朝時盛產及出口香木。這種香木屬於莞香,又名女兒香,當年在廣東與江浙等地備受歡迎。據說,「香港」的名稱的由來就是因為香木的盛產和出口。
