[The first three consonants] of the Korean word Gyeonggi-do, reflects the peace and liberty of the region's people.
The circle, which is red and orange, symbolizes the origin of the universe and also signifies that Gyeonggi is the center of Korea in every aspect of our lives, including politics, economy, culture, and history.
The blue color on top symbolizes the eternal development and growth of Gyeonggi. It is at the head of the global and local movement and is the heart of the 21st century's unified Korea. The white ground symbolizes the fact that the people are descendants of the noble Korean ancestors.
