The change in name was due to the political status of Taiwan. In addition, they flew a flag especially designed for the games separate from the flag of the Republic of China. In Mainland China, the team is known as the "Zhongguo Taibei (Taipei, China, where China implies the People's Republic of China) Team" (中華台北隊), and in Taiwan the team is known as the "Zhonghua (another variation of the term China, but obtained here as an abbreviation of Zhonghua Taibei) Team" (中華隊).
