flows across the Korean peninsula from Gangwon-do, Chungcheongbuk-do, Gyeonggi-do, and Seoul districts. Hangang gets its name from the Korean word "hangaram," han meaning large, and long. As its name suggests, Hangang supplies water for agriculture and industrial factories as well as waterworks for adjacent cities such as Seoul, Chuncheon, Wonju, Jecheon, and Chungju.
Ipobo's design is focused on the national project's goal to revitalizing the four major rivers in Korea. Its vision, "river of new life, new Korea" is materialized in its design, embodying a future where locals come together as a community and work together for a better future. The flock of white heron represents the bright future of the Hangang.
Yeoju is blessed with Namhangang and Yeoju Field, surrounded by beautiful mountains. It is the resting place of Sejong the Great and a cultural capital where old wisdom is still honored and praised. Yeojubo is dedicated to harmony between the tomb of Sejong the Great and its natural beauty.
Gangcheonbo was inspired by the eight beautiful sceneries of Yeoju and Yeoju-gun's cultural and historic heritage. The white heron and Hwangpo sail boat represent the local culture and its traditional image reinvented into a majestic modern image. Its concept is "a new world reflected on Namhangang" and named "Mulbitnuri Gangcheonbo" meaning "light reflecting Gangcheonbo."
