I would like to know why no article is added before "chinese flag".

It's not a sentence. It's an advertisement. Haven't we had this conversation recently? (It could have been someone else).

In advertisements, articles are usually omitted for the sake of space.

Even in an advertisement, though, "Chinese" should be capitalised.

Adverts, notes, headlines and titles may omit things like articles to focus on what matters to them.
