|Short name||HONG KONG|
|Language||Chinese (zh), English (en)|
In 1900, Hong Kong proper (the island and Kowloon) was a British crown colony, and the British also had a 99-year lease on the New Territories. The Japanese occupied the territory during World War II. On 1984-12-19, the British and Chinese governments agreed that Hong Kong would become a Special Administrative Region of China on 1997-07-01, and so it did.
Chinese xiang: perfume, gang: port (i.e. the port of perfumes)
Hong Kong is divided into eighteen districts. The districts in New Territories are rural districts; the others are urban.

In Hong Kong's local government structure, municipal councils are under the district boards.
The UN LOCODE page for Hong Kong lists locations in the country, some of them with their latitudes and longitudes, some with their ISO 3166-2 codes for their subdivisions. This information can be put together to approximate the territorial extent of subdivisions.
1974-04: Sha Tin and Tuen Mun districts created. These were the divisions of Hong Kong at this time.
