Professor Han is angry at Legoland America again, they “painted the wrong Taiji flag”!
According to Korean media reports such as South Korea’s “Asian Economy” and Yonhap News Agency on the 4th, it was recently discovered that the souvenir T-shirt of Legoland in California, USA, had the wrong picture of the Korean flag “Taichi Flag” painted on it, causing controversy. Xu Yangde, a professor at Sungshin Women’s University in South Korea, said that he had learned about the mispainting of the Taiji flag, and sent an email to Legoland to ask it to correct the mistake.

“Asian Economy” reported that, judging from the photos of the souvenir T-shirts that were released, in the Tai Chi pattern in the center of the South Korean flag, the two colors of red and blue are upside down, representing the four colors of “Qian, Kun, Kan, and Li” respectively. There is also an error in the position of the pattern of the hexagram.
According to reports, Xu Yangde said that so far, many Korean netizens have reported the wrong drawing of the South Korean flag at various famous tourist attractions, museums, art galleries and hotel facilities around the world. He is working with Korean netizens to constantly correct and correct mistakes. He also said, “The flag, as a symbol of a country, must be corrected if there is an error in the design of the flag pattern.”
According to Xu Yangde, the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) also made an error about the South Korean flag in the match table when it hosted the 2022 Qatar World Cup Asian qualifiers. Judging from the pictures released at the time, although the colors of the Tai Chi patterns were correct, the pattern positions of the four hexagrams of “Qian, Kun, Kan, and Li” were even more outrageous.

According to previous reports, Xu Yongde “expressed anger” on July 14 to a report in the American media “Wall Street Journal” that compared the assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Ito Hirobumi, an independent activist on the Korean peninsula, to the assassination of Shinzo Abe. .
