The name "Corona Lions" derives from "Corona" which is the symbol of "K" Line's specialized fleet for transport of thermal coal known as the Corona-series. Also the lion, which is often called the king of beasts, is a common charge in heraldry, traditionally showing bravery, valor and strength.

The Corona-series, which "K" Line originated and continues to develop, consists of epoch-making coal carriers equipped with wide beam and shallow draft, which is the most suitable type to enter ports of domestic thermal power plants to discharge cargo.
