The lotus logo is a symbol containing our wishes to keep our hearts, the world, and nature clean, just like the clear and fragrant lotus flowers that grow out of the mud.
"Malgeum" (noun form of malgo), means individual's purity and "hyanggiroeum" (noun form of hyanggiropge)
means the echo of such purity through society.
The logo was designed by Prof. Ko Hyun (Chosun University, Division of Design, College of Arts and Design) in 1993..
