In 1723 the Qing dynasty emperor issued an edict ordering all junks from Guangdong province to be painted red at their bows for customs inspection and taxation purposes.
For most of the 18th and 19th centuries, these "Red Head Junks", or Ang Thau Tsung (红头船), were the primary means of transport for tens of thousands of Teochews who ventured to Southeast Asia in search of trade, work, or refuge. Accordingly, the Red Head Junks became synonymous in the region with the Teochew people.
