On the left, five Chinese maps produced and sold in China indicate regions of the People’s Republic of China using different colors, and use dashed lines on the ocean to include its claimed territory in international waters. In these maps, territory of Taiwan is painted over with grey — the same color of other countries beside China, and the 9 dash lines are painted with the color of the ocean.
On the right, a Chinese communist propaganda poster with the line saying “liberating Taiwan” on the bottom is painted with white acrylic to highlight the weapons in the image.
