The paper is devoted to the analysis of the linguistic and cultural aspect of caricature texts from the point of view of meaning using the example of protests in Hong Kong represented by the Englishlanguage media. The theoretical review considers such terms and concepts as political caricature, creolized text, linguistic cultural aspect and presuppositions. Political caricature is interpreted as a creolized text, which is an element of political discourse, which meaning is realized based on certain presuppositions, or background knowledge, which in turn is updated through a number of speech and stylistic means. As an example the analytical part of the paper provides analyses of five English-language publications on this topic. The analysis allows illustrating the mechanism for the formation and subsequent implementation of meaning at both the speech and iconic levels of a text, and also demonstrates the role of background knowledge in creating and perceiving the meaning of a political caricature.
