The Presidential Office Building was formerly the Office of the Governor-General during Japanese rule. Construction on the Office of the Governor-General began in June 1912 and the building was completed in March 1919, so 2019 marked the building's 100th anniversary.
The centennial graphic design uses horizontal bands and red bricks, mirroring the Presidential Office Building facade. The red bricks symbolize a foundation built collaboratively by citizens over generations. The centennial logo is a three-part combination of red bricks, an arcing curve, and an upward pointing arrow, alluding to the connection between past, present, and future.
