In 1948, Korea was divided along the 38th parallel, the north to be controlled by the USSR, and the south under the control of the USA. The traditional Korean flag, originally used in the 1880's, was reintroduced in 1950 as the flag of South Korea, with some minor changes. The white field represents the people's purity and their desire for peace.
The central emblem is the red and blue yin-yang symbol, depicting the concepts of creation and development through duality and balance. Surrounding this are four black Kwae symbols, a reflection of Chinese cosmogony, which are taken from the I Ching and represent the four seasons, the four compass points, the four elements, and the sun, moon, earth, and heaven. They denote the process of yin and yang going through a spiral of change and growth.BUY NOW
