South Korea Flag
The South Korean national flag, commonly known as the Taegukgi or Taegeukgi (lit. ‘Taiji flag,' is a symbol of the country and has been flown as the country's official flag since August 15, 1945, when the country earned independence from Japan.
A white rectangular backdrop with a red and blue Taegeuk symbol in the center and four black trigrams, one in each corner, make up the flag. The Taegeuk sign depicts the universe's balance and harmony, and the four trigrams are symbols from ancient Chinese philosophy that reflect the four cardinal points and the universe's equilibrium. The Taegukgi is a national flag comparable to those flown by the Joseon dynasty, the Korean Empire, and the Korean government-in-exile during Japanese occupation.
