Donggu symbol mark
"As the birthplace and gateway of Busan, our district harmonizes tradition with a strong future orientation, reflected in this emblem." The oval emblem, with a width to height ratio of 7:6, represents the pride, harmony, local patriotism, and love of Dong-gu’s citizens, striving for advancement. On the left half of the emblem, we see the left portion of the Chinese character "東"(‘dong’, meaning ‘east’) depicted in a contemporary style, representing the tradition and long history of Dong-gu, the birthplace of the port of Busan. The right half of the emblem represents the future of Dong-gu, as it powerfully stretches out to five continents and six oceans. The two contrasting colors, deep blue and red, denote the continuation and handing down of tradition and innovation and dynamic progress.
