  • Depictions of the full Korean Peninsula are on full display ahead of the inter-Korean summit on Friday.
  • Japan’s foreign ministry has lodged a formal complaint about the use of the Korean unification flag which depicts a pair of disputed islands between Japan and South Korea.
  • The flag is set to be featured on a dessert served to the leaders of North and South Korea.

Ahead of the historic meeting between the leaders of North and South Korea on Friday, political emblems depicting unity have been rolled out across South Korea.

One of these is an outline of the full Korean Peninsula, like on the Korean unification flag seen prominently at the Olympics. Inside Peace House, where Kim Jong Un and Moon Jae-In will meet, chairs have been engraved with the same outline and a miniature version of the flag will be placed on a dessert later in the day.
