South Korea National flag

The flag of South Korea, also known as the Taegukgi is the national flag of South Korea. It has three parts: a white background, a red and blue Taeguk in the centre, and four black trigrams, which are selected from the original eight, on each corner of the flag.

The flag's background is white, which is a traditional Korean colour, common to the daily attire of 19th century Koreans. It represents peace and purity. The circle in the middle is derived from the philosophy of yin and yang and represents the balance of the universe. The blue section represents the negative cosmic forces, and the red section represents the opposing positive cosmic forces. The trigrams together represent the principle of movement and harmony.
