Korea is one of a small group of countries where held the 3-world-festivals: Olympic, World Cup, and Expo. But the cultural souvenir has been hardly developed, even if it is high value product. Besides, it is more needed to develop regionally-branded souvenir which is different from place to place. Based on the fact above, this study is dedicated to analyze the theme and significance of `Expo 2012 Yeosu Korea' and find out the way to apply those data on designing cultural souvenir for brand of Yeosu. Expo 2012 Yeosu Korea will build world class marine tourism-leisure belt linked with development plan for Dadohae(archipelago) Tourism in southern coastal area. Then, it is expected that southern coastal area including Yeosu would be a new tourism hub in Northeast Asia and there would be active tourism exchange especially with China. To be a comprehensive leisure tourism attraction, Yeosu should necessarily develop the design for cultural souvenir beforehand. The purpose of this study is to apply the symbolic design of Yeosu into the souvenir.
