Geumgang

Geumgang passes through Jangsu and forms Yongdam Lake continuing on to Muju and Yeongdong. Its beauty peaks at Muju Gucheon-dong and is praised as Yangsan's Eight Beautiful Sceneries. Geumgang has supplied water for Honam (Jeolla-do) Field and served as Baekje Dynasty's main source of water running through the then capital city. It was an important means of transportation that allowed Baekje's culture to flow into Japan.

Gongjubo

Gongjubo's motif comes from the phoenix, representing Baekje's king, a reoccurring theme in the dynasty's culture. It dreams of the return of King Muryeong who restored Baekje back in the day. Baekje's phoenix and its Bidansu represent the return of the dynasty. The name "Geumbitnaraebo" comes from the image of the legendary bird flapping its wings.
