Seal of the Yeogang High School

The school moniker, in two three-stroke diamond inscribed blocks, consists of "yeo gang", or "bristle river". The name comes from the way local waterways sinuate like horse bristles during the wet season. The red badge symbolizes a strong will to study, the blue badge large dreams.
