The visual identity of the Conference emblem is inspired by Taegeuk and Palmido Lighthouse.
Taegeuk, a circle in the center of the Korea national flag, is divided into two equal parts resembling a comma. There are a lot of meanings in the circle. The upper red comma represents the "yang" and the lower blue comma the "yin", an ancient symbol of the universe that is in perfect harmony and balance. These two harmonious forces, both complementary and in opposition, express the dualism of the cosmos or the absolute: fire and water, light from lighthouse and sea, land and sea, day and night, masculine and feminine, hot and cold, etc.
The imagery of Palmido Lighthouse in the Conference host city, Incheon, which is the first modern lighthouse in Korea, is expressed on Taegeuk. The lighthouse is not only the first modern lighthouse but also the most wanted place to visit among many lighthouses in Korea. It has also been designated as the National lighthouse cultural asset No.1.
