Original Korean War Era South Korean Taegukgi Rayon Silk Flag - 36" x 27"

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. The flag of South Korea, also known as the Taegukgi (Korean: 태극기 or 'Taegeuk flag'), has three parts: a white rectangular background, a red and blue Taegeuk in its center, and four black trigrams one toward each corner. Flags similar to the current Taegeukgi were used as the national flag of Korea by the Joseon dynasty, the Korean Empire, and the Korean government-in-exile during Japanese rule. South Korea adopted the Taegukgi as its national flag when it gained independence from Japan on 15 August 1948.

This example of the Taegukgi is quite attractive. It is constructed of a rayon silk like material which has unfortunately hardened and made the material somewhat brittle, so do handle with care as it tears easily. The insignia is painted on with the colors retained well, but there is the expected cracking.

A fantastic example ready for further research and display.
