Design[change | change source]

The background is white. In the center there is a blue figure of the Korean Peninsula, including Jeju Island to the southwest, and Ulleungdo and the Liancourt Rocks to the east, added in 2003.

In the 2018 Winter Olympics, Ulleungdo and the Liancourt Rocks were not included in the flag.[1]
