Symbolizing Gangwon's active and abundant development Each color signifies one of Gangwon's various elements (emboding the image of the province and the harmony of its residents)

  • The Blue ellipse represents the earth, the home of the comfortable mind
  • Green represents the clean, beautiful natural environment
  • Yellow stands for everlasting historical and cultural environment, signifying the harmony of nature and culture through the stabilizing shape of a square
  • The White leaf shows the residents' promise for new challenges.
