Hong'an County (simplified Chinese: 红安县; traditional Chinese: 紅安縣; pinyin: Hóng'ān Xiàn), formerly named Huang'an County (黄安县), located to the north of Wuhan, is a county in Huanggang, Hubei province, People's Republic of China.

Hong'an is known as the "County of Generals" in that more than 200 (actually 79 with the real rank, plus those who had a similar rank during or after Liberation War, making 223) Chinese army generals have been born there, a total far greater than for any other county in all of China.

The former military leader and President of China, Li Xiannian (1909–1992), was born in Hong'an.
