Yadong Elementary School

[Yadong Elementary School flag] image located by Esteban Rivera, 24 August 2015

I've found this flag and I can't identify what it is, or what it stands for. There's an inscription on the flag but unfortunately I can't read Korean. There's also this sign, showing what seems to be the coat of arms of Ya Dong:
Now, the file is labeled "YadongFlag" but be careful, because when I was looking for information on this word, I found that Yadong is actually a slang term for porn... so hopefully someone can actually read the writing on the image and help identify the flag.

The inscription on the bottom of the flag is 야동초등학교, which Google translates for me as "Erotic Movie Elementary School." Taking that with a grain of salt and remembering that there is a town in Gyeonggi Province named Yadong-ni, I wonder if this is the flag for Yadong Elementary School. Anyone have any additional insight?
In fact, now that I take another look at the second photo that Esteban linked, it's a sign pointing to Ya Dong Elementary School, with the exact same Korean inscription on the sign as on the flag. I think we have a winner!
