Korea International Circuit Emblem Blends Harmony and Speed

The Korea International Circuit (KIC), currently nearing completion and set to host the FORMULA 1 KOREAN GRAND PRIX from October 22 to 24, has unveiled its official emblem – an eloquent combination of national tradition and high-octane excitement.

The design is inspired by the Korean flag, or ‘Taegeukgi’, and incorporates motorsports’ most recognisable symbol, the chequered flag.

The ‘Taegeukgi’ incorporates the four Taoist philosophical ideals of harmony, symmetry, balance and flow, and its swirling treatment on the KIC emblem depicts both the energy of motorsport and the flow of the circuit.

Commented Korea Auto Valley Operation (KAVO) Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Yung Cho Chung:  “The Yin and Yang elements of the Taegeukgi represent perfect balance and give our emblem a local aesthetic, while the modern design reflects our technologically-advanced new motorsport facility, the only one of its kind in the country and set to become the heart of the sport in South Korea.  The emblem will be a symbol of motorsport excellence here.”

The KIC emblem will become increasingly visible as the new circuit establishes itself as one of Southeast Asia’s leading motorsport hubs, and hosts a variety of international, regional and local meetings over the coming months.
