KAF Logo

The infinity symbol gently embraces the ‘Taegeuk’ mark (representing Korea) and the African continent, which manifests the infinite potential of the Korea-Africa partnership. The green color, which is also the color of the African Union (AU), indicates KAF’s vision towards a prosperous future of both Korea and Africa, as well as symbolizes the younger generation who will play a pivotal role in the Korea-Africa relations.
