There stands a statue as high as 22. 3m with intaglio and relief of Taegeukgi (the Korean flag) at the center of the Patriotic Martyrs Monument, and Taegukgi symbolizes the will and vigor of independence that were shown in all the 13 Korean provinces. At both sides of the monument, for a length of 40m, a figure that symbolizes historic activities of struggles for independence is embossed, and the Memorial Tower for Patriotic Martyrs Monument is engraved just below the figure. Our patriots' will for independence and the history of their anti-Japanese struggles to gain independence from the Japanese Empire is recorded on the Memorial Tower for Patriotic Martyrs Monument.
