    I've seen the South Korean flag displayed vertically in many dojangs displayed in just about every possible way. Can someone please tell us the correct way to hang it vertically (with a photo).

    Thanks!

    A good general rule to display flags vertically is to put the top left corner in the top left corner. That would be "yang" on the left, and "heaven" (乾 Qián-don't know it in Korean) trigram (three solid bars) in the top-left corner.

    Couldn't find a picture, sorry-and it maybe that the South Koreans have a different rule......

    Why not hang it horizontally?

    Blue on the left hand side as you look at it.

    Or, basically, rotated 90 degrees clockwise from horizontal, and opposite what I said is conventional.
