” Taegeukgi ”


The Korean national flag, the Taegukki is a symbol of peace, unification, creation, light and eternity.

Taegukki, the Korean national flag, has the taeguk circle in the center, and the four three bars at each corner. The Taeguk circle, Yin and Yang, (an ancient symbol of the universe) represents the great cosmic forces that oppose each other yet achieve perfect harmony and balance. The four three bars represent the ideas of opposition and balance. The white background, shows the purity, harmony, and the peace-loving mind of the Korean people. In 1882, Park Young-Hyo used the Taegukki for a first time and this was selected as the national flag in 1883.
