While on my recent trip to South Korea, I traveled through Yangpyeong County in Gyeonggi Province, visiting the Jipyeong-ni battle site. While there, I noticed that the flag we had for Yangpyeong County is incomplete. It does, indeed, feature the county logo displayed on a white field. However, it also has the county name in black Hangul characters beneath the county logo.
