P'eng-hu County (92,489 inhabitants in 2005; 141.052 sq. km) is made
of group of some 90 islands, formerly known as Pescadores (Fishers'
islands) scattered in the Taiwan Strait, between Taiwan and
continental China. The County is made, from North to South, of
Paisha / Bai-sha Township, Hisyu / West Isle Township, Huhsi / Hu-xi
Township, Magong / Ma-gong City, Wangan / Wan-an Township and Cimei /
Chimay Township. More than half of the population of the county lives
in Magong City.
The name of P'eng-hu appeared during the Song dynasty's rule, while
the first mention of settlement in the islands dates back to the Nan-
Song dynasty (1225). The archipelago became a den of pirates and
robbers, with some limited attempts of reconquest by the Chinese
government. On 12 July 1604, P'eng-hu was settled by a three Dutch
vessels bringing soldiers and traders, who set up a post. The Dutch
were expelled in 1624 and a fort was built, served by artillery and
The county flag is shown on the P'eng-hu County website, with the
following description of the emblem:
- Penghu county badge (in the middle lies the white world Peng, and
the upper half of the logo will be colored sky-blue while the half
below will be colored dark blue)
- Yellow base
- Red chirographic font2
The county badge is explained in depth on another page of the county
- A white logo, [with] the Chinese word Peng, is designed with a
light house with top in the middle and with the Penghu bridge across
the ocean. In the logo, we see six waves representing the six cities
in the Penghu county strongly united together.
- As to the background, the deep blue symbolizes the ocean, and the
light blue stands for the blue sky. Therefore this logo explains what
a quiet and pretty ocean paradise Penghu is with its grand ocean and
the beautiful sky.
- The logo as a whole symbolizes the structure of Penghu. There is a
lake inside the island, therefore outside the lake we see passionate
waves while inside the lake water is as peaceful as a mirror. Also in
the county, there is a famous big bridge* across the ocean and five
lighthouses named: Tongjee, West Isle, Mudow Isle, Chamu Isle and Hua
isle. All these five lighthouses stand firmly in the Taiwan straits
and shine with splendor to show the spirit and characteristics of
*The "famous big bridge" is the P'eng-hu Trans-Oceanic Bridge
connecting Baisha and Siyu, the longest bridge in Taiwan (2,494 m).
