Thanks to those who have responded.

Shortly after sending my request I thought to try the magic of Google
(should have thought of it sooner of course).

Up came the following:  "Asia-Pacific Shorebird Network - Leg flags used on
local flyways"

And there it was - black above white = "Chongmin-Dao".


A: Chongmin-Dao [= Chongming Island, China]


Now, utilizing Wikipedia:

There are several islands of Shanghai governed by
<> Shanghai city, including the three
larger inhabited islands and a number of uninhabited ones. They are
<> alluvial islands in the
<> Yangtze River Delta in
<> China.

Chongming Island lies against the northern shore of the
<> Yangtze River and is an
<> alluvial island formed by
<> silt carried along the river. It gives
the name to  <> Chongming
County, the only county of  <>
Shanghai. It is the third largest island in China after
<> Hainan Island and
<> Taiwan.

I have now reported the sighting to  as requested on
the website.
