For the most part of KFA Emblem, primary color "Blue" is used. "Blue" represents not only hope and youth but also an activism. Futhermore, Blue is interpreted as an Eco-Friendly color in Korean history. White border line around the shield-shape emblem represents pure sportsmanship towards the game of football, whereas gold border line outside of the white border stands for Korean Football's unbreakable strength and solidity.
Tiger, at the center of the emblem, is an animal that represents greatness and strength. As a leader of all animals, tiger possesses courage and wisdom. In history, tiger was a symbol of fear but at the same time placed itself deeply in the mind of Korean people. Also, fellow asian countries named Korean national team as "tiger of Asia" for its courage and passion. By using tiger in the emblem, KFA tried to make Korean national team's image coincide with korean people's beloved animal.
The tiger's gesture of grasping onto the ball with its forepaw not only represents its passion and obsession towards the ball, but also the perseverance to look after Korean Football. The gazing eyes of the tiger shows its confidence to overcome any hardship and the promising future of the Korea Football League.
