Mayoral residence in Songhak-dong, reborn as the “Incheon Citizens’ House”

Incheon chooses “Incheon’s 40 Years of Independence, a History of Pride and a Future of Hope” as slogan for upcoming event

At a citizens’ advisory panel meeting for the “Incheon Independence 40th Anniversary Event,” the Incheon Metropolitan City Government agreed on a slogan for the event and a new name for the old mayoral residence (“Incheon Citizens’ House”).

 

On May 4, Incheon hosted the second citizens’ advisory panel meeting (the Incheon Independence 40th Anniversary Event), featuring experts on the history of Incheon, city/administrative experts, event/planning experts, members of the general public, and representatives of various civic groups, to choose both the slogan for the event and a name for the former mayoral residence.

Incheon held a local referendum for the event slogan options discussed at the panel’s first meeting and new name of the former mayoral residence from May 12 to May 21 (ten days).

 

445 citizens participated in the online voting for the slogan to headline the event celebrating the 40th anniversary of Incheon’s independence and the name of the old mayoral residence.

 

Voters chose Incheon Citizens’ House as the new name of the old mayoral residence.

Furthermore, the advisory panel confirmed the “event identity” (EI) for the “Incheon Independence 40th Anniversary Event.”

The option selected by the advisory panel consists of three ocean-colored water droplets. Here, the color represents the sea off the coast of Incheon, and the three water droplets symbolize the past, present, and future of the city. In particular, the wave-like pattern hearkens back to the proud and complex history of Incheon, and the loosely shaped round pattern indicates a new era with a rosy future.

Although the main color is blue, the part that symbolizes the 40 years of Incheon’s independence uses various highlight colors to express a bright and hopeful future.
 
Hwang Gyu-cheol, Head of the Citizens’ Advisory Panel, said, “We believe the event should be a meaningful opportunity to inform the public of what the Incheon Independence 40 Anniversary Event hopes to achieve, and offer everyone a chance to share and celebrate what Incheon has been able to accomplish throughout its history and what it hopes to achieve moving forward.”

Yeo Jung-hyeop, Head of the Planning and Coordination Office at Incheon City Hall, said, “We will do our best to gather the vast capabilities of Incheon as we build up to the event, so that the general public can use this event as a meaningful opportunity to strengthen their identity and pride as Incheon citizens.”

 

Incheon plans to build a dedicated website for the Incheon Independence 40th Anniversary Event, and share information on the event and its key programs from June 10. Prospective visitors will be able to make their reservations via this dedicated website.
