The flag of South Korea has three parts: a white background; a red and blue taegeuk in the centre; and four black trigrams, one in each corner of the flag.

The white background symbolizes "cleanliness of the people." The Taegeuk represents the origin of all things in the universe; holding the two principles of eun and yang; the former being the negative aspect rendered in blue, and the latter as the positive aspect rendered in red, in perfect balance. Together, they represent a continuous movement within infinity, the two merging as one. Traditionally, the four trigrams are related to the Five Elements of fire, water, earth, wood, and metal.
