The symbols will carry the same beauty and idea these patterns represent to help publicize Korean culture.Hanbok shows Korea’s traditional beauty and elegance. It is worn on holidays such as Korea’s Thanksgiving Day and New Years Day, and special events like weddings. I used to think of Hanbok as a clothing for holidays and school events when I was little. Hanbok uses a variety of traditional design symbols that represent different meanings. These design symbols are visualization of Korea’s idea, behavior and custom. The design symbols can be divided into five categories, Nature, Plant, Animal, Geometric and Text/Character. All designs are based on things found in nature. In the Nature category, Cloud and Wave are the most popular designs. Cloud represents harmony and Wave is often used for decorations. They act as supporting role for other designs. Plant’s most widely used designs are Peony and Lotus. Peony was used by the royals as it represents property and status. Lotus means life and creation. Plum, Orchid, Chrysanthemum and Bamboo are the Four Gracious Plants. They represent the dignified and noble man of virtue. Hanbok carries Korea’s culture and philosophy. It will play an important role in advertising Korea.
