The symbols are designed based on Korea’s traditional clothing called Hanbok. This traditional dress features simple lines accented by vibrant colors and patterns. It reflects the custom, ideology, and behavior of ancestral Koreans. The symbols focus on patterns that were printed or handcrafted on Hanbok worn by rulers and aristocrats. They can be divided into five categories of different meaning: nature, plants, animals, geometry, and scripture. This set of symbols is based on plants, geometry and scripture to showcase the beauty and ideology of Korea.
