TAIJITU
[noun]
Traditional Chinese: 太極圖; Simplified Chinese: 太极图; Pinyin: tàijítú; rough English translation: “diagram of the supreme ultimate” or “diagram of the supreme power”.
A term which refers to a Chinese symbol for the concept of yin and yang* (Taiji). It is the universal symbol of the religion known as Taoism and is also often used by non-Taoists to represent the concept of opposites existing in harmony. The taijitu consists of a symmetrical pattern inside a circle. One common pattern has an S-shaped line that divides the circle into two equal parts of different colours. The pattern may have one or more large dots. The classic Taoist taijitu (pictured below), for example, is black and white with a black dot upon the white background, and a white dot upon the black background.

* “yin and yang” is used to describe how seemingly opposite or contrary forces are interconnected and interdependent in the natural world; and, how they give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. Many natural dualities (such as female and male, dark and light, low and high, cold and hot, water and fire, life and death, and so on) are thought of as physical manifestations of the yin-yang concept.
