Cinderella is one of the most remarkable short stories in all ages. Cinderella was the best-known fairy tale, and probably the best liked in every region in the world. This study tries to analyze the three versions of Cinderella stories, the stories are written by Katharine Pyle, Charles Perrault, and the animation movie is produced by Walt Disney. This study focuses on the symbols which appear in Cinderella stories. The researcher uses Representation theory by Stuart Hall to find out about the meanings of the symbols. The method of this research is qualitative research. The data sources of this research are the three versions of Cinderella stories. The result of this study is the researcher finds out the symbols which dominantly appear in the stories. The symbols are: the glass slipper reprsents about true identity, gentleness, and purity; the gown represents about double identity and unsual beauty; the pumpkin represents about transition, wealth, and relationship; the animals represents about temerity and lower class; and the characters represents about struggle, God, dream, and jealousy. The symbols are found because Pyle, Perrault and Disney use the items which are dominant, and mostly have the connection to Cinderella. Each of the symbols reveal the meanings which are represented in the story.
