 Republic of China (1924–1948)

Taiwan, officially the Republic of China (ROC), currently competes as "Chinese Taipei" (TPE) at the Olympic Games. The Republic of China, representing all pre-war China, participated at the Summer Olympic Games in 1932 and 1936, and, representing all of China including Taiwan, participated in the 1948 Summer Olympics. After the Chinese Civil War the ROC retreated to the island of Taiwan and only Taiwan-based athletes have competed in its team since then. Athletes of Taiwan participated at the Summer Olympic Games in 1956, 1960, 1964, 1968 and 1972 as Republic of China (ROC). The ROC boycotted the Summer Olympic Games in 1976 and 1980 until it returned to the 1984 Winter Games, and started participating as Chinese Taipei (TPE).

Due to pressure from the People's Republic of China, since 1984, Taiwanese athletes have competed under the Chinese Taipei Olympic flag instead of the flag of the Republic of China. For any medal ceremony, the National Flag Anthem of the Republic of China is played instead of the National Anthem of the Republic of China.

Taiwanese athletes won their first Olympic medal in 1960, and their first gold medal in 2004, and their highest total medal count in 2020 games.
