This is a design conceived by independence activist Nam Gung-eok. The shape of the Korean peninsula was created using the branches of a rose of Sharon, and thirteen roses of Sharon in full bloom were used to indicate the thirteen provinces of Joseon. On this map embroidered on hemp cloth, there is a text that reads, “In commemoration of the liberation of Joseon,” on the right.
