Emblem of WPK


The emblem of the Workers’ Party of Korea was instituted as designed by President Kim Il Sung, founder of the Party.
After Korea’s liberation on August 15, Juche 34(1945) Kim Il Sung put forward a line on developing the WPK into a mass party of the working people. At this the dogmatists shook their heads.
When there was raised an opinion on drawing a writing brush in an emblem of the Party, they opposed the idea, saying that intellectuals are not an independent class, but an intermediary stratum of society.
At this Kim Il Sung said it was true that intellectuals are a stratum of society, not an independent class and we could do nothing without them. And he said a country could not be defended without guns, and a nation could not be built without them.
He stressed that our Party emblem should represent intellectuals along with workers and peasants to symbolize the WPK as a unified party of the working masses of people embracing the progressive working class, peasants and intellectuals.
The emblem of WPK symbolizes that the Party is a revolutionary party of the working class and a mass party of the working masses.
The hammer in the emblem is symbolic of workers, the sickle of peasants and the writing brush of intellectuals.
The emblem is the symbolic mark of WPK the hammer, sickle and writing brush cross one another at a point.
The emblem symbolizes that the WPK is a vanguard unit of the working masses including workers, peasants and intellectuals united closely ideologically and organizationally around the leader and a revolutionary and mass party takes a deep hold upon popular masses and conducts all activities to suit the requirements and interests of the popular masses.

Today the WPK is a vanguard unit of the working masses of people that is united closely ideologically and organizationally around the respected Kim Jong Un, upholding Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il as its eternal leaders.  


Motherly Party Serving People

The Korean people intimately call the Workers’ Party of Korea a motherly party and follow and support it with sincerity.
Guiding the WPK victoriously for nearly half a century, leader Kim Jong Il made steadfast efforts to build the WPK founded by President Kim Il Sung as a motherly party.
Kim Jong Il said that to build the Party into a motherly party means to make it a genuine guide and guardian of people that takes a meticulous care of the masses of people with the responsibility for their destiny just as a mother looks after her children with an utmost loving care.
Pointing out that our Party should be a genuine motherly party that leads and cares for the people with the politics of love and trust and benevolent politics, he always iterated that he would work without sleeping at night all his life for our finest people in the world and he was more firmly determined to fully repay the people’s unswerving trust in the Party and their expectations.
He also noted that only when we love the people without calculation, can we do even one thing more for them and it was his arithmetic and the Party’s accounting method to think of no profitability first in any undertaking for people.
The respected Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the WPK is carrying forward the noble idea of “The people are my God” of Kim Jong Il who devoted his all for people through his life.
 Advancing the slogan “Everything for the people and everything by relying on them!”, Kim Jong Un noted that the slogan contains the Party’s will to fill the whole Party with love for and trust in the people.
He said it was the firm determination of the Party to respect the people and devote everything to them as we hold Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il in high esteem and the embrace of the motherly Party cares more for sick and wounded children, gives them love and affection, cures their sour wounds, helps them up and puts them forward again, instead of blaming them.
He went on we should train all people to be strong in ideology and faith with great force produced by the motherly Party’s love and trust, thereby building rings of fortresses around the Party Central Committee.
Rallied firmly around the Workers’ Party of Korea headed by Marshal Kim Jong Un, the Korean people are advancing along the road of Juche and Songun, entrusting their destiny and future to the motherly Party.

TRADITIONS OF GREAT NATIONAL UNITY IN KOREA
Today a vigorous struggle is being conducted in Korea in order to achieve the independent and peaceful reunification of the country through the great national unity under the idea of “by our nation itself”. It is the steadfast faith and will of the Korean people that they can surely accomplish their long-cherished desire of national reunification when all the compatriots in the north, south and overseas are united irrespective of ideas and ideals, systems and party affiliation, religious beliefs and political groupings.
The great national unity in Korea is based on a deep foundation.
On May 5, 1936, 76 years ago from now, President Kim Il Sung founded the Association for the Restoration of the Fatherland (ARF) as an anti-Japanese national united front body to liberate Korea from the military occupation of Japan.
In response to his idea of the great national unity the Koreans from all walks of life, transcending differences in thoughts and ideals, political views and religious beliefs, property status and social positions, were embraced in the ARF, giving top priority to their country’s liberation, the common demand and interest of the nation.
  The ARF contributed greatly to overthrowing the colonial rule of the Japanese imperialists and achieving Korea’s liberation on August 15, 1945.
After liberation, the President, based on the tradition of the great national unity, raised the slogan of calling on all Koreans to the building of a new country, those with strength dedicating strength, those with knowledge devoting knowledge and those with money offering money, and encouraged the people from all strata of society who love the country and the nation to come out as one for the building of a democratic, independent and sovereign state.
In 1948 there was the danger that the division of the nation would be perpetuated owing to the machinations of the United States to hold a “separate election” and establish a “separate government” in south Korea. He convened the north-south joint conference to arouse different political parties and groups and patriotic forces of different sections of the population in the north and the south to the struggle for realizing the sovereignty, independence and reunification of the country.
Entering the 1970s he opened the way to dialogues and negotiations between the north and the south, which had been tightly closed each other, and advanced the three principles for national reunification - independence, peaceful reunification and a great national unity - laying a solid foundation for national unity and national reunification.
The Ten-point Program of the Great Unity of the Whole Nation for the Reunification of the Country written by the President in April 1993 can be said to be the summary of his idea of great national unity and his practical experience. This program elucidates the fundamental principles and the ideological basis to be maintained in achieving the great unity of the nation and the specific tasks and ways of implementing them.
President Kim Il Sung’s idea of great national unity was carried forward successfully by leader Kim Jong Il.
It was his unshakable determination and will to reunify the country on the strength of great national unity by defending and faithfully inheriting the great idea of national unity, brilliant achievements, valuable experience and traditions left by the President.
Even under the complicated situation after President Kim Il Sung passed away on July 8, 1994, Kim Jong Il dedicated his all to carry out his instructions for national reunification.
In April 1998 he made public Let Us Reunify the Country Independently and Peacefully Through the Great Unity of the Entire Nation, in which he pointed out that the idea of great national unity, the ten-point program of the great unity of the whole nation advanced by the President, the valuable experience he gained in his work for national unity and the brilliant results of his distinguished services are the solid foundation for great national unity and national reunification.
True to the President’s idea of great national unity, Kim Jong Il made strenuous efforts to embrace and unite all the people who love the country and the nation, irrespective of their ideology and ideals, class and stratum.
He stated on several occasions that he would also join hands with people from upper classes in power, figures from the ruling party and the opposition party, big capitalists and brass hats of south Korea under the banner of great unity of the nation, if they value the common interests of the nation and want the country’s reunification.
He showed his broadmindedness of meeting south Korean presspersons and business people as well as politicians, inspiring them to contribute to the common cause of national reunification.
He met several times Jong Ju Yong, honorary president of the Hyundai Business Group in south Korea, his son Jong Mong Hon and his family members and took all measures to help them render distinguished services to the prosperity common to the nation and the cause of national reunification.
Thanks to his courageous decision the historic inter-Korean summit was held in June 2000 for the first time in the history of Korea’s division, producing the June 15 North-South Joint Declaration which solemnly declared to solve the question of the country’s reunification by the concerted efforts of the Korean nation. Another summit was held in October 2007 and the October 4 Declaration, an action program for the June 15 Joint Declaration, was adopted there, shedding a brighter light on Korea’s reunification.
Korea will surely be reunified under the banner of great national unity.




INVINCIBLE   WPK
PARTY WITH CLEAR-CUT GUIDING IDEOLOGY
Starting his work at the WPK Central Committee, Kim Jong Il made clear his will to hold fast to the Juche idea authored by President Kim Il Sung as the guiding ideology of the WPK and thoroughly embody it in the Party building and activities.
Through his energetic ideological and theoretical activities, he proved in a scientific way that the Juche idea is an original ideology of the revolution, which correctly represents the requirements of the times and the revolution and the interests of the popular masses and enriched it in keeping with the developing revolution in the present era of independence. He formulated the President’s revolutionary idea into an integrated Juche system of idea, theory and method and proclaimed the program of modelling the whole society on the Juche idea so as to imbue the whole Party with the Juche idea.
He led the WPK to solve all problems solely in line with the idea, intention and method of President Kim Il Sung, founder of the WPK, and thoroughly apply the requirements of the Juche idea into all fields of the Party building and activities.
In July 1994 when the President suddenly passed away, Kim Jong Il put forward “The great leader Kim Il Sung will always be with us” & “Let us arm ourselves more firmly with the revolutionary ideas of the great leader Kim Il Sung!”as the main slogans of the WPK.
As it has been guided by Kim Jong Il, the WPK has developed into a powerful party with strong independent stand which knows no slightest vacillation in any storm and ordeal of history but vigorously advances along the road of accomplishing the cause of socialism without any mistake or blunder concerning the line.
Party of single-hearted unity
Unity and cohesion of a party can be said to be a basic criterion decisive of its invincibility and might.
The WPK, steered by the outstanding leadership of Kim Jong Il, has witnessed neither factions nor consequent strife.
He has developed the Party into an organization and ideological crystallization based on one center and one ideology and will, where all the Party members have been armed with the idea or their leader and closely rallied around him to act as one under his leadership, thus forming a perfect, harmonious whole. Regarding all the Party members as his revolutionary comrades sharing one and the same will and destiny with him, he has shown his warm love and great trust in them and turned the WPK into an integral whole in the sense of moral obligation.
Kim Jong Il’s outstanding leadership is not confined to the Party alone. He has given wise guidance to the army, the people and other members of the Korean society, with the result that the DPRK was able to achieve the integrated whole of the Party, the army and people, a reality unprecedented in the history of world’s politics.
It is not fortuitous that the WPK stood firm in the face of collapse of ruling parties in some socialist countries one after another in the closing years of the last century and demonstrated its invincible might throughout the world.
Party deeply rooted among masses
Kim Jong Il entrusted that the WPK has taken its root deep among the masses of the people and enjoyed their absolute support and trust .
Fully embodying the President’s idea “The people are my God”, he saw to it that the WPK set it as its supreme principle to serve for the sake of the people’s interests and thoroughly incorporated it in its work and activities.
As the WPK has administered benevolent politics, an all-embracing politics, for broad sections of the masses including workers, peasants and intellectuals and enforced such people-oriented policies as free medical care, free education and abolition of tax system, the Korean people call it the “Mother Party.”
He led all Party officials to work for the people as their faithful servants and the WPK to enjoy absolute trust of the people by putting forward such slogans as “Let the whole Party go among the masses!” and “We serve the people!” That is why Korean people are now following the WPK, entrusting it with their own destiny and future, and advancing forward under the slogan of “When the Party is determined, we can do anything!” It is well evidenced by the eye-opening events taking place in this country in the drive to build a great, prosperous and powerful nation.
The Worker’s Party of Korea will always demonstrate its might as an ever-victorious Party as it is guided by the great leader.
