South and North Korea will use the same flag at the Winter Olympics. The Olympics are in February. They are in the South Korean city of PyeongChang. People were worried because tensions between the two countries are high. North Korea has tested many missiles. However, both countries decided to use a "unified Korea" flag. There will also be a joint ice hockey team. This might improve relations between the two countries.

The better relations could bring peace talks. The Koreas have been divided since the 1950-53 Korean War. The Winter Olympics could help to bring peace. A cross-border road will open for the first time in two years. Not all Koreans are happy with this news. Thousands of people asked South Korea's president to forget about the plan. South Korea's hockey coach said a united hockey team could damage South Korea's chances of winning an Olympic medal.
