The Korean flag symbolizes much of the thought and
philosophy of the Orient. The symbol, and sometimes the flag itself, is
Depicted on the flag is a circle divided equally and
locked in perfect balance. The red section represents the Yang (plus) and
the blue section the Um (minus), an ancient symbol of the universe which
originated in China. These two opposites express the dualism of the
cosmos: fire and water, day and night, dark and light, construction and
destruction, masculine and feminine, active and passive, heat and cold,
plus and minus, and so on.
The central thought in the Taegeuk indicates that while
there is a constant movement within the sphere of infinity, there are also
balance and harmony.
Three bars at each corner also carry the ideas of
opposition and balance. The three unbroken bars stand for heaven; the
opposite three broken bars represent the earth; the two bars with a broken
bar in-between symbolize fire; the opposite is the symbol of water.
