North Korea Government - meaning of the National Emblem.
In the background, Mt. Paekdu can be seen. This "scared mountain of revolution" (officially the place of birth of the "Dear Leader" Kim Jong Il) together with the 5 pointed red star that beams over the hydro-electric damn represent the revolutionary spirit and history of the Korean people and their prosperous future. The hydro-electric damn together with the ears of rice that surround it represent the strength of the country's industry and agriculture. The red ribbon on which the words "the Democratic People's Republic of Korea" are written represent the homogeneity of the Korean people, the development of the country and its bright future.
