China’s largest photo provider is back from its blunder.

One month after it went offline, Getty Images partner Visual China Group (VCG) reopened for business on Sunday, according to an official statement.

In April, VCG closed off its website after facing criticism for claiming China rights to the world’s first black hole photo. It also raised regulators’ concerns when it seemingly claimed rights to images of China’s national flag. It was later fined 300,000 yuan ($44,751).

VCG has now completed an internal inspection, its statement said Sunday. The new VCG site shows no search results for China’s national flag – though the company said related images will be available after further inspection.

VCG’s stock price in Shenzhen climbed 4.99% as of Monday morning’s market close.
