Korean Factoid: Bonghwang

Korean Factoid: Bonghwang

Bonghwang (봉황)

Mythical creatures have existed in Korean culture since the country's ancient times. Korea has its version of the phoenix and its called bonghwang

Like the dragon, Korean phoenixes have held a significance for royalty in the past. In the present day, the bonghwang symbol is found on the President Seal and in the Blue House.

The bonghwang symbolizes immortality. Our team has designed a t-shirt featuring a collection of bonghwang appliqués specifically to celebrate Independence Day in the United States as a "hurrah" and "huzzah" to being resilient and rising again.

Our limited 4th of July Phoenix Bundle can be found here.
