I like # 13,14 and 16. I did make a mistake for the H of CHI. It is Healing instead of health. On 13 and 16 lets try to reverse the ying and yang ( yang, white should come from the top part ( sky ) ).
14 has some great idea but is a little cold.
The raven is supposed to be the messenger, bringing the knowledge we have to offer.
I appreciate the creativity of the artists and look forward to more entries.

Would you make sure that the Yin and Yang sign is in correct position: that is Yin ( dark, earth ) come from the lower side and Yang ( sun, sky) from the high side.

GENERAL FEEDBACK TO ALL:
1) "Health" needs to be changed to "Healing" on all designs that incorporate this word
2) The yin-yang symbol must be shown as it is in design #19- meaning the black needs to be on the right with the fattest part of the black on the bottom. The white must be on the left, with the fattest part of the white on the top. In order to be considered, the design must be done this way. To display the yin yang any other way is bad luck.
3) To be considered, there much be an outside border encapsulating all of the verbiage (as this will be a patch). Examples that work are #19 and #26 and #33.

Design Specific Feedback (in addition to the above):
#42- can you adjust the blue to be more similar in tone to #46. Adjust the bird so that the wording can be more centered across the top (like it was in the design that was removed(

#19-Can we see a different angle of the bird - same place in the design but the bird doing something more similar to #42 or #46

#46/47- Can you do a version with the Combat-Healing-Inner Strength words (perhaps across the bottom - move International to the top with Chi?

#39- Switch Chi Internation with the other words so that they Chi International is on top. Keep Chi and International both Black.

#26- Because the yin-yang must be changed (see general comments) - can the bird still be incorporated this way?

#51-In addition to the general remarks, please removed the "wing stripes" coming off the yin yang.

#15-just general changes.

#33- no changes

#41 - general changes and remove the wings off the yin-yang.

IMPORTANT GENERAL COMMENT:

IMPORTANT GENERAL COMMENT:

In order to be selected the Yin-Yang must be properly drawn. The only design that currently has the correct placement of the yin-yang (in terms of which color goes on which side and which way the swirls are placed is # 99. There is also a more in depth description of this placement on the June 1 feedback post (general).

Also, the word Health must say Healing to be considered.

We are ready to end the competition after seeing a few more minor revisions. One key to this is making sure that they will "pop" off of various colored uniforms when placed as a badge.

Thank you to all of you for your excellent work.
