Overview

Since 15 August is Liberation Day in both North and South Korea, celebrating the end of the Second World War and the liberation of Korea from Japanese occupation, I decided to post the flag of South Korea's Ministry of Unification.
The Ministry of Unification traces its history to the 1 March 1969 creation of the National Unification Board, responsible for overseeing the South Korean government's efforts toward reunification of the Korean Peninsula. In February 1998, the National Unification Board was renamed the Ministry of Unification. Since 1998, the Ministry has played a pivotal role in pushing for inter-Korean talks, exchanges, and cooperation.

Former Flag

I found a photograph online showing the flag of the Ministry displayed behind the Minister while holding a meeting with the US Ambassador in April 2013.
The flag shows the Ministry's logo centered on a white field. Below the logo are the Korean word 통일부 ("unification") and the English name of the Ministry.
