What is Yin & Yang
Yin and Yang are two opposite forces working together to create one life. For example, when Yin is over powerful Yang is weak and visa versa. When a person is unhappy YIn and Yang are unequal. When the forces are unbalanced in the body, a person would become sick. When Yin and Yang are unbalanced things can occur like floods, droughts, and plagues. But when a person is happy Yin and Yang are equal forces. Yin and Yang rely on each other and they can't exist without one another. It's a symbol of Confucianism and it helps people understand what their purpose is in life.
The original meaning of Yin and Yang signified the dark and light side of a mountain. Early in the day the sun would illuminate one part of a mountain while the other side would remain dark. As the sun moved across the sky it began to light the opposite side of the sky. It lies at the root of Taoist tradition and describes unity of life through 2 forces.

The hidden meanings of yin and yang - John Bellaimey
The Confucianists favorited Yang more than Yin. Heaven favorited Yang because Yang is the warm bright light force of the two. Yang is the white side of the symbol. Yang in the real world would be a nice person and you could always trust Yang.
The symbol is rounded and black & white. The equal sections are shaped as a fish. There is no way to determine who, what, when, where, why, or how the symbol was created. It was well known around the world and it originated in daily life in ancient China.
