South Korean Flag (also called "Taegeukgi")
● The Blue part of circle is Um (Ying) and the Red part is Yang. Together they represent the balance of opposites in the universe.
● The White background is the traditional color of the Korean people and symbolizes peace.
● The trigrams (line symbols) also represent the concept of opposites and balance. They are taken from the I Ching (Book of Changes) which has a total of 64 trigrams.
- Upper left is "Geon" which denotes heaven while its opposite in lower right is "Gon", meaning earth.
- Upper right is "Gam" for water, and its opposite in lower left is "Li" meaning fire.
Together, the Um / Yang circle and the four trigrams represent universal harmony and unity. This sentiment is embodied in the South Korean pledge of allegiance to the flag, which is:
"Before this proud Taegeukgi, I firmly pledge my loyalty and will devote my body and soul to the eternal glory of my country and people."
