Eui-Am / 의암 was the pseudonym of Son Byong Hui / 손병희, leader of the Korean independence movement on March 1, 1919. The 45 movements refer to his age when he changed the name of Dong-Hak / 동학 (Oriental culture) to Cheon-Do-Gyo / 천도교 (Heavenly way religion) in 1905. The diagram represents his Indomitable Spirit, displayed while dedicating himself to the prosperity of his nation.
