White - Signifies innocence, as that of the beginning student who has no previous knowledge of Taekwon-Do.

Yellow - Signifies the earth from which a plant sprouts and takes root as the foundation of Taekwon-Do is being laid.

Green - Signifies the plant's growth as Taekwon-Do skills begin 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.

Black - Opposite of white, therefore signifying maturity and proficiency in Taekwon-Do; also indicates the wearer's imperviousness to darkness and fear.
