a hearty welcome for foreign guests from all over the world on the occasion

which spreads out toward the world, bringing harmony and peace to mankind

red in the Taegeuk symbol and the black in the 4 trigrams of the Korean
national flag as well as yellow expressing light. The logo achieves a
harmonious beauty combining traditional images with modern typography.

mind to receive visitors with their pleasure.
