Facts about the flag:
The red and blue colors are traditional Korean colors, as is yellow, which is not on the flag.
The white background is a symbol of purity. The image in the center is called the Taiji symbol, which is a variant of yin and yang. Blue is seen as negative and red is considered positive.
The four characters surrounding the symbol are derived from I Ching, an ancient Chinese prediction book. They represent the four philosophical ideals the state stands for: harmony, symmetry, balance and circulation.
Both South Korea and North Korea initially had similar flags. Then the North changed its flag to a more Soviet-inspired design. The flag of South Korea was adopted on the 12th of July, 1948.
