Flag of South Korea (GIF)

The flag of South Korea (Korean: 대한민국의 국기), known as the "Taegeukgi," features a striking and harmonious design. It consists of a white field with a blue and red Taegeuk (also called Taiji) symbol at the center. The Taegeuk represents the balance of opposites and the unity of dual forces, such as heaven and earth, light and darkness, and positive and negative energies. The blue section, located at the bottom, represents the negative cosmic forces, while the red section, at the top, symbolizes the positive cosmic forces. Surrounding the Taegeuk are four sets of black trigrams, known as "Kwae," representing the fundamental elements of nature: heaven, earth, fire, and water. The flag's colors and symbols reflect South Korea's cultural and philosophical heritage, emphasizing the principles of balance, harmony, and unity in the nation's identity.
