About Pyeongchang 2018

Koreas Agree on marching with a unified single National Flag
The last time the Korean Unification flag was used was some 11 years ago at the 2006 Doha Asian Games.
The prevalent political tensions of both the Koreas, North and South, is age-old and internationally scrutinized on a daily basis. With many concerns of any further escalations of such conflict, the two Koreas make a surprising move and agree to march under a single Korean flag.
After two years of silence between the two nation’s high-level officials, the agreement, if surfaced, entails that a joint women’s ice hockey team will represent the two Koreas under a single team.
The agreement does not go without its controversy resulting with some petitioning and arguing to scrap the agreement for political reasons and a South Korean coach publicizing his concerns about losing the medal for the women’s ice hockey event if the agreement was to materialise.
The forefront believes the move will allow for the two Koreas to enable passage for open dialogue between the two Koreas and ultimately, address some of their nation’s most pressing concerns.
