Hyundai Asan Company

Here is a photo from Kaesong Industrial District. Can anyone identify the flag? Probably the flag of a South Korean construction company.
Jens Pattke, 10 April 2016

It belongs to the Hyundai Asan (현대아산) company, who is a part of building the park. There is a variant of this flag as well, minus the logo text, at https://www.hhi.co.kr/About/about08 and http://isplus.live.joins.com/news/article/article.asp?total_id=19558351&ctg=1000&tm=i_lf in Hanja (Chinese characters taken and used for Korean and have Korean pronunciation).

Yes, this is a branch flag of the Hyundai Asan Group.

Hyundai Motor Company (officially 현대 자동차 주식회사 = Hyŏndae Chatongch’a Chusik-hoesa) is a South Korean automobile manufactor founded in 1967, doing business worldwide and since 1998 part of Hyundai Kia Group. See also: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyundai_Motor_Company.
Its logo shows a stylized slanted "H" with round cutouts inside a horizontally lying elipsis. Apart from the litteral meaning, at this page it is said that the logo is also supposed to be symbolic of the company's desire to expand.
The ovaloid shape indicates the company's global expansion and the slanted, stylized 'H' is symbolic of two people (specifically the company and customer) shaking hands.
At http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Patrulha_GNR.jpg a blue flag with white logo and lettering, on a 2:3 background and flying freely from a vertical pole indoors is shown in use as of 2008 in Portugal, in what may be a sample of worldwide usage.

"Korea Electric Power Corporation, better known as KEPCO, (한국전력공사:Hanguk Jeollyeok Gongsa). is the largest electric utility in South Korea, responsible for the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity and the development of electric power projects including those in nuclear power, wind power and coal. The South Korean government owns a 51% share of KEPCO. KEPCO traces its origins to Hanseong Jeongi Hoesa (Hansung Electric Power Company), founded in 1898. The announcement of the Chosun Electricity Control Decree by the Colonial Korean government in March 1943 saw the integration of several electric companies into the Korea Electric Power Company. The Korea Electric Company (KECO), established through the integration of the Korea Electric Power Company and two distribution companies, Gyeongsung Electric Company and South Korea Electric Company, opened on July 1, 1961. In 1982, KECO became a wholly government owned entity and was renamed the Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO)."

Samsung Electronics

Samsung may seem to have a variant flag from the one we display currently. There's this flag that actually has more letters in the Korean inscription below than the one we have on our site.
