The Yin Yang Symbol
The yin-yang symbol (also known as the Tai Chi symbol) consists of a circle divided into two halves by a curved line. One half of the circle is black, typically representing the yin side; the other is white, for the yang side. A dot of each color is situated near the center of the other’s half. The two halves are thus intertwining across a spiral-like curve that splits the whole into semicircles, and the small dots represent the idea that both sides carry the seed of the other.
The white dot in the black area and the black dot in the white area connote coexistence and unity of opposites to form a whole. The curvy line signifies that there are no absolute separations between the two opposites. The yin-yang symbol, then, embodies both sides: duality, paradox, unity in diversity, change, and harmony.
- The yin-yang philosophy says that the universe is composed of competing and complementary forces of dark and light, sun and moon, male and female.
- The philosophy is at least 3,500 years old, discussed in the ninth-century BCE text known as I Ching or Book of Changes, and influences the philosophies of Taoism and Confucianism.
- The yin-yang symbol is related to the ancient method used to track the movements of the sun, moon, and stars around the year.
The flag of Sierra Leone was officially adopted on April 27, 1961.
The green is symbolic of the agricultural and natural resources of the country, while the white represents justice, and the blue is symbolic of Freetown’s harbor.
The coat of arms of Sierra Leone is composed of two lions rampant supporting a coconut tree and shield. Within the shield are three torches, representing peace and dignity, and a third lion against green mountains, a symbol of the Lion Mountains.
