The symbol mark consists of 3 parts.

  • The mountain in the upper part represents Jirisan Mountain, the sacred mountain of the Korean people, as well as the spirit of strong classical scholars.
  • The dynamic ring, twining around Jirisan Mountain, symbolizes the development of Sancheong in the future.
  • The shape of a gem in the lower part is symbolic of the pure waves and the clean natural environments of Gyeonghogang River, Deokcheongang River, and Yangcheongang River.
