Korean unification flag emblematic of better ties

Korean unification flag
North and South Korea's plan to march together under the same blue-and-white Korean peninsula flag at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics next month marks the revival of an emblem of warmer ties between the old foes from years past.


The two countries will be hoping for some of the same sort of "feel good factor" they enjoyed at the Olympics in 2000, when they were greeted by a standing ovation in Sydney's Olympic Stadium after marching in under the unified flag for the first time.

The "Korean Unification Flag," showing the Korean peninsula in blue against a white background, traces its origin to 1989, when North and South Korea agreed to use a new flag for a possible joint team in the 1990 Asian Games.
