What do the symbols of the Korean flag represent?
The four trigrams originates in the Chinese book I Ching, representing the four Chinese philosophical ideas about the universe: harmony, symmetry, balance, circulation. The general design of the flag also derives from traditional use of the tricolor symbol (red, blue and yellow) by Koreans starting from the early era of Korean history. The white background symbolizes "cleanliness of the people." The taegeuk represents the origin of all things in the universe; holding the two principles of "Eum", the negative aspect rendered in blue, and "Yang", the positive aspect rendered in red, in perfect balance. Together, they represent a continuous movement within infinity, the two merging as one. The four trigrams are: | Force (?; geon (?; ?) in Korean) = heaven (?), spring (?), east (?), virtue (?); ¦¦¦ Field (?; gon (?; ?)) = earth (?), summer (?), west (?), justice (?); |¦| Radiance (?; ri (?; ?)) = sun (?), autumn (?), south (?), courtesy (?); ¦|¦ Gorge (?; gam (?; ?)) = moon (?), winter (?), north (?), knowledge or wisdom (?). Traditionally, the four trigrams are related to the Five Elements of fire, water, earth, wood, and metal. An analogy could also be drawn with the four western classical elements.

The Australian National Flag today has a blue background: against this background are the symbols of the Union Jack, the Commonwealth Star and the Southern Cross. The Union… Jack in the upper left corner (or canton) acknowledges Australia's origin as a British settlement. The Southern Cross, positioned on the right hand side of the flag, is a constellation visible from all of Australia's states and territories, and which was vital to early ships' navigation. In the bottom left hand corner is the Federation Star, also known as the Commonwealth Star, a seven pointed star which represents the union of the six colonies at federation. There is a seventh point to represent Australia's many territories (mainland and offshore). The Australian National Flag was first flown in Canberra in 1901.

The flag consists of the state's coat of arms and motto on a field of azure. While the pine needle supporters of the coat of arms are represented throughout New England, the p…ine tree in the middle of the coat of arms represents the Vermont forests. The cow and three sheaves of wheat represent the dairy and agriculture industries. The deer head on top represents Vermont's wildlife. The Green Mountains are in the background as well. The motto, "Freedom and Unity", is also used. The motto balances two different ideals, the freedom of the individual citizen, and the welfare of the common good. See the related link.
