Symbol

This logo is designed in the shape of Hobup Dragon, the protector of Taewhasa, Hoguk Dragon of King Munmoo and Cheo Dragon, the child of the King of the Dragons, the three guardian angels of Ulsan and the symbol of the East Sea.
The seeming ascendance to heaven by the dragon with yeouijoo represents the progressive spirit of Ulsan.
