  • Green – Signifies the plants growth as the Taekwon-Do skill begins to develop.
  • Blue – Signifies the Heaven, towards which the plant matures into a towering tree as training in Taekwon-Do progresses.
  • Red – Signifies danger, cautioning the student to exercise control and warning the opponent to stay away.
