Although they are just a small religion, they always firmly believe in the philosophy of “great polarization” and the theory of yin and yang and take the symbol of the blue and red swirl. And it is also a symbol that sits at the center of Korea’s national flag today.

After the Korean War in 1955, the rebuilding of the country and the city of Busan was no exception, so the local government requested the relocation of more than 800 Taegeukdo religious households to move to another area.
