The leader of Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Mao Zedong defeated the leader of Chinese Nationalist Party (Kuomintang) Chiang Kai-Shek in 1949. Mao seized the control of country and Shek escaped to Taiwan. From that time, the period of enmity between China and Taiwan began. At this stage, the Mao administration showed the Taiwanese as a hostile country, focusing on an intense propaganda campaign in the Chinese public opinion. One of the mass media tools used by the Chinese administration in anti-Taiwan propaganda was posters. In this study, it was tried to show how and in what way Taiwan was presented in posters used by China propaganda against Taiwan. For this purpose, six propaganda posters determined from the Shanghai Propaganda Posters Art Museum were examined using semiotic analysis in qualitative research methods. The Chinese propaganda posters, determined in the study, were analyzed in terms of the semiotical concepts of the French linguist Roland Barthes. The findings of the study revealed that there was a hate speech against Taiwan in Chinese propaganda. On the other hand, it was concluded that Chinese propaganda gave the message that China would conquer Taiwan until Mao's death, continuing the enmity between the two countries through the posters.
