I ran into the following flags. They are from peace groups in South Korea. Have you ever seen them?

"Shincheonji, Church of Jesus, the Temple of the Tabernacle of the Testimony (SCJ), commonly known as Shincheonji (Korean: 신천지, Hanja 新天地, "new heaven and earth") is a Christian organization established on March 14, 1984 in South Korea by Lee Man-hee. He is the chairman and leader of the group. SCJ has established several other organisations. There is some level of skepticism about the purpose of these 'sister organisations'. Some of the known aliases are "Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light" (HWPL) for which Mr Lee is the Chairman, "International Peace Youth Group" (IPYG), "Mannam" (Or Mannam Volunteer Association), "Mannam International Youth Coalition" and "International Women's Peace Group" (IWPG). The members of these different groups are also members of SCJ. Under the umbrella of these organisations Mr Lee is considered to be a peace advocate with regard to religious conflicts and war, human rights, and youth and women empowerment. HWPL is a non-governmental, non-profit organization (NGO) in association with the United Nations Department of Public Information (UN DPI)
