Korean Air is rumored to be preparing to rebrand for the planed Asiana merger. The company has reportedly applied for a new simplified logo trademark which implies a reduction of fuselage colors in a new livery.

The current powder blue top and silver livery (Taegeuk design) (top) was introduced on March 1, 1984 when the airline name was formally changed from Korean Air Lines to Korean Air.

The 1984 livery was initially introduced on its MD-80s and Boeing 747-300s. It was designed with the help of Boeing.

Since then the easily-recognized livery has helped the flag carrier grow around the world.

The red and blue spiral logo represents the opposing forces of nature.
