  1. Zhōngguó中国

The word ‘Zhōngguó’ has been around for 3,000 years, referring to the Central Plains dynasty established by the Huaxia or Han people, but it is only a regional concept. “Zhōngguó” was officially used as the name of the country, which began after the Revolution of 1911. On New Year’s Day 1912, the Republic of China was established, referred to as “Zhōngguó”.

‘中国’一词出现已经有3000年了,指华夏或汉族建立的中原王朝,但它仅仅是一种地域概念。“中国”正式作为国名,始于辛亥革命以后。1912年元旦,中华民国成立,简称“中国”。

  1. Zhōnghuá中华

In ancient times, most of the Huaxia people built their capitals in the north and south of the Yellow River. Because it was in the four directions, it was called Zhōnghuá. It was the place where the Han people first emerged. Later, the territories of the dynasties became wider. All places under the jurisdiction of the Central Plains Dynasty were collectively called “Zhōnghuá”, referring to the whole country.

古代华夏族多建都于黄河南北,以其在四方之中,因称之为中华,是汉族最初兴起的地方,后各朝疆土渐广,凡属中原王朝所管辖的地方都统称为“中华”,泛指全国。
