World Convention of the Korean Language 2021

About Symbol

The new symbol of the 2021 World Convention of the Korean Language represents a handful of Korean phonemes tweaked into basic geometric shapes, such as triangle, rectangle and circle.

The symbol is designed as such to emphasize that the letters of Korean consonants are basically modelled after simple geometric shapes, which are friendly and approachable to everyone.

The traditional Korean color spectrum, also known as Obangsaek, was used with a touch of youthfulness and vitality to effectively show the diverse and dynamic nature of the event.
