Korean Unification Flag
Taegukgi, the traditional Korean flag was the flag of the Korean empire. When the northern portion of Korea became a socialist republic supported by the Soviet Union following the restoration of independence of Korea in 1945, the Taegukgi was once again in use. With Soviet Russia's insistence, North Korea introduced the current flag on July 10, 1948, and officially adopted it on 8 September 1948. Its design is defined in Article 170 of Chapter VII of the North Korean constitution.
