The symbol of Korean Air is designed to promote its status as a national carrier. Based on the concept of Yin and Yang that is incorporated in the national flag, and the red and blue colors in perfect harmony derived from the Taeguk circle, the mark symbolizes the dynamic strength of the company.
The white shape positioned between the red and blue represents a propeller in motion, symbolizing its powerful driving force and the pioneering spirit of the company. The shape constitutes a critical part of the symbol and is not to be omitted or altered in any way.
The single color version is designed with several horizontal lines in the upper part to add a clear distinction between upper and lower parts in terms of hue.
There is no white area that separates the upper and lower parts. Instead, these parts are separated by the background color.
