Red flowers such as peonies are popular among Chinese so it is not surprising that some Chinese used it for their restaurant name, which when transliterated becomes "Hung (red) Far (flower) Low" (building) or HUNG FAR LOW.  The Anglo perception, however, is that the name has sexual connotations related to the male sexual anatomy.  When the neon sign that proclaimed this restaurant name in Portland for almost a century was removed a few years ago, Portlanders felt a deep sense of loss and campaigned for the resurrection of this symbol which titillated visitors to Chinatown for years. Eventually, $77,000 was raised to restore the sign atop its original building site in 2010 even though the original restaurant had since moved to another part of town!
