The Tao symbol looks cool an' all but I've two problems.

The symbol is symmetric but good and 'evil' aren't. There's a lot more ways to harm than to aid. So if I were to design my own I would choose a chord a third of the way between the diameter and outermost edge, parallel, and do my two equal-sized, ajoining circles on that line and colour the larger side black. The smaller circles at their centre would remain the same size.

Secondly, in Taoism this symbol is used to represent the universe as a whole. They make the classic mistake of projecting mankind on to the cosmos. I would need another circle for the universe. A blank one, not even white, with no boundry.
