Zhong Guo is China (Middle Kingdom literally).

The full name of PRC is, Zhong Hua Ren Min Gong He Guo (中华人民共和国).

"G" stands for "guojia" (state, nation, national).

G = guo = 国 = country. Usually in Chinese one will say guo dao/ 国道(route name here), meaning national road. So when you see G103, for example, Chinese (Mandarin) will say guo dao yi ling san/ 国道一〇三, meaning National Road 103. Hope this clears things up .

Since last year, they have been replacing old signs with new ones like the one in the picture (G30 is the east-west route from Lianyungang-Horgos, 4280km, also the longest route)
