National Emblem of the Republic of Korea
대한민국의 국장
Armiger South Korea
Adopted10 December 1963; 60 years ago (1963-12-10)
(Republic of Korea)

The National Emblem of the Republic of Korea (Korean대한민국의 국장; Hanja, lit.'Republic of Korea national emblem') consists of the taegeuk symbol present on the South Korean national flag surrounded by five stylized petals and a ribbon bearing the inscription of the official Korean name of the country (Daehan Minguk), in Korean characters. The Taegeuk represents peace and harmony. The five petals all have meaning and are related to South Korea's national flower, the Hibiscus syriacus, or Rose of Sharon (Korean: 무궁화; Hanja: 無窮花, mugunghwa).

The emblem was adopted on 10 December 1963.[1][2][3] The flower and taegeuk symbols are generally considered by South Koreans to be symbolic of the "Korean race" (Korean: 한민족, lit.'"Han race"').[3]
