The City Flag
The flag of Anyang City contains blue - the color that symbolizes peace and comfort for Anyang citizens- and white - the color that symbolizes purity and innocent minds of Korean. The white circle over the blue background symbolizes the shining sun and the unity of citizens; and the two intertwining ovals on the round circle are the symbols of hopeful progress towards all directions and modernization of cultural exchanges.

1. The green background of the city flag represents vitality, while the white color of the logo represents the purity and virtue of the citizens.
2. The inner circle of the city logo represents the geographical position of Ichon City in the heart of Korea. A circle also corresponds to the first letter in Ichon City's name.
3. The three bars within the logo represent self-reliance, self-sufficiency, and co-operation. Three lines are also suggestive of the Chinese character for river, , which sounds as "chon".
4. The logo in its entirety resembles the well-known Korean symbol for hot spas.
5. The outer circle of the logo represents the harmonious and balanced character of the Korean people.
6. The flag of Ichon City was designed to reflect all the features of the city and its citizens.
