Symbol of KOA

This symbol represents that orthopedics rectifies human body and mind as if to straighten a crooked tree

Association Flag

The Association decided to manufacture its Flag at the meeting of the Board of Directors in December 1980, ran a design contest via the Journal of Korean Orthopedic Association and got the flag manufactured on September 25 of the same year. With the Association’s mark embroidered in gold color on the blue cloth, the Flag has been turned over to a following president by a former one as a token of transfer of the Association’s tasks since the 36th annual general meeting in October 1981.

Association President’s Medal

It was the first Association President’s Medal that was transferred to Jang Ik Yul by Kim Bong Kun at the hand-over ceremony of the 34th general meeting in 1979. Since then, a former president has put the Medal on a next president’s neck at an annual hand-over ceremony.
