The “Taegeuk” mark was used as a symbol that can create a common bond among people in order to express the Korean government’s history, traditions, and future visions.
* A unified government emblem applied according to the Presidential Notice of announcement on the government emblem
The font is a modern version of Jeongeum font, which is the first font of the Korean alphabet when it was invented. As such, the font harmonizes well with the Taegeuk mark and expresses the highest authority that a government emblem has.
The Taegeuk mark maximizes Korea’s characteristics with combination of blue, red, and white on the Taegeuk flag and the simplicity of the symbol, and the open end shows that the Korean government is open to the people, the world, and the future.
