Ulleung County Symbol Recognizes 'Three Peaks' of Ulleungdo

One of the old names for the Korean island of Ulleungdo in Korean historical documents was "Sambongdo" (三峰島 - 삼봉도), which means "Island of Three Peaks." Ulleungdo's three prominent peaks were mentioned numerous times in Korean historical texts. Though some nationalistic Korean historians claim that Sambongdo was referring to Liancourt Rocks (Takeshima - Dokdo), Korea's own historical texts, and, apparently, even the symbol for Korea's Ulleung County (울릉군) seem to contradict that claim.

Notice that the Ulleung County symbol to the left shows three peaks against against a background of red. The county's Web site, HERE, describes the symbol as follows:

The oval shape of the outer edge of the symbol represents the sun rising over the East Sea (Sea of Japan). With Ulleungdo's Seongin Peak in the center, the shape of the mountains is shown with a design of three triangular peaks that represent Ulleung's unyielding spirit.

가장 자리를 둘러싼 타원은 동해에 떠오르는 태양을 상징하며 산의 형상은 울릉도의 성인봉을 중심으로 울릉의 굳굳한 기상을 삼각형태의 대칭구조로 2분하여 도안 되었습니다.

The Korean seems a little awkward to me, so if someone has a different translation, please let me know. For example, I assumed 굳굳한 meant 꿋꿋한. Also, the expression 2분하여 seems awkward to me.

Again, the three peaks of Ulleungdo were mentioned numerous times in Korea's historical documents.

Thanks, Chaamiey, for pointing out the symbol.

  1. I think "굳굳한" means "꿋꿋한",too.
    "2분하여" would be an another expression of “삼각형태의 대칭구조”.

    가장 자리를 둘러싼 타원은 동해에 떠오르는 태양을 상징하며 산의 형상은 울릉도의 성인봉을 중심으로 울릉의 굳굳한 기상을 삼각형태의 대칭구조로 2분하여 도안 되었습니다.
    감싸듯이 올라간 곡선의 라인은 수평선을 나타내며 가장자리의 곡선은 물의 표면장력을 표현하여 바다의 품에 안긴 울릉도의 포근함을 나타냅니다.
    푸른색은 동해의 푸르른 바다 청정을 나타내며, 굵은 흰색은 뻗어 나가는 환태평양 시대의 중심에 서있는 울릉의 기상를 표현합니다.
    8개의 푸른세모꼴은 3무5다의 특성을 가진 울릉의 오묘함과 푸르름을 상징하였습니다.

    全体を囲む楕円は東海に昇る太陽を象徴し、山の形は鬱陵島の聖人峯を中心に鬱陵の不屈の精神を三角形の対称構造で二分した図案になっています。
    包むように上がる曲線のラインは水平線を現わし、端の曲線は水の表面張力を表現して、海の懐に抱かれた鬱陵島の穏やかさを現わします。
    青色は東海の青い海の清浄さを現わして、太い白は伸び行く環太平洋時代の中心に立っている鬱陵の気性を表現します。
    8つの青い三角形は、「三無五多」の特性を持つ鬱陵の幽玄と青さを象徴しています。

    三無五多・・・・鬱陵島には三種のもの(泥棒、乞食、車)は無いが、五種のもの(雪、風、イカ、イブキ、美人)は多いということわざ。


     三つの峰については、これが「三峰島」を意味していると受け取られてはいけないわけでしょうから、苦心の説明になっています。

  2. ただ、鬱陵島には、三峯島が「獨島」であるという虚偽のプロパガンダの看板がありました。

    On Ulluengod there are fake explain which Three peak island is Liancour Rocks.

    また、「獨島」という名前が、1881年から使われている、という虚偽の説明もありました。
    And. they explain with distorture that they named Dokdo on 1881.
