South Korean Flag love the meaning behind it. I've also heard that the short and long lines along with representing the elements also represent the strong protecting the weak and the weak protecting the strong. Like the taegeuk, its all about BALANCE.
In the Korean flag, blue symbolizes eum or yin, which is cool, feminine energy. Eum energy is associated with the moon and is passive, yielding and receptive. Blue is balanced by red in the Korean flag. While red represents the passionate energy of life, blue represents its opposite, death.
south korean flag | Tumblr. Note what's missing East=Father, North=Son, South=Mother, West=Daughter this represents a.. Family. The physical and the spiritual. Blows my mind! Amazing how Mother happens to also be " earth" the dirt that created Adam. very revealing, and oh so very subtle. <3 The white background represents the Nation but also "purity", Circle = world, living things good/blue and bad/red. 4trigrams = gov., family, direction, season so very spiritual. amazing!!!
