New logo: New World Party

South Korea's ruling party, the Grand National Party, announced last week that they were changing their name to Saenuridang, which translates as the "New World Party", a name selected from suggestions sent in by the public. Namechanges are quite common among Korea's political parties, this one was triggered by a series of political scandals.

A new party logo was unveiled today, February 7. If any Korean readers could provide more information about the symbolism behind the new logo, it would be appreciated.
