It is a Chinese symbol known as yin and yang. It is also called a Tai-Chi symbol.
Taiji Quan of china aka grand ultimate fist style is associated with Daoism or the Yin Yang symbol. There are many forms of tai chi, one of the oldest styles is Yang family tai chi, my personal favorite! Check out the film The Tai Chi Master starring Jet Li and Michelle Yeow then you will understand all, grasshopper!

i do not believe that this symbol is a part of a religion but more a symbol of the three main energies of the body; Shen, Chi and Jing. These energies are taught specifically with Acupressure/Acupuncture and Shiatsu.
Chieh Yang has written: 'Wu-wei chi'
The main symbol of Taoism is the Yin Yang. Yin and Yang are both types of Chi/Qi (Energy). The black part of the symbol (Yin) has a white speck inside it and vice versa. This means that people who act in an inadequate way are still able to behave in the approved manner and people who behave well are still able to misbehave.

Tai Chi Zero is a martial arts style film created in 2012. Yang ventures to Chen Village to dabble in the arts of tai chi. Villagers were strictly forbidden from teaching outsiders about the most powerful form of tai chi and a man planning to construct a railroad through his village prompted Yang.
Yin and yang combine opposing but complementary forces to create harmony in nature. By using t'ai chi, a person can bring this principle of harmony into their own life.
The most popular Tai Chi DVD series are The Tai Chi - 24 Hours, Sunrise Tai Chi, Totaly Nude Yoga and Tai chi, Tai Chi for Health - Yang Short Form with Terrence Dunn etc.
My favorite unique DVD on Yang Style Tai Chi is "Yang Style Fighting Applications" by Bruce Frantzis (you can get it online). If you want a video of the form to copy from and learn, there are actually plenty on Youtube, just search "Yang 24" (that is the simplest, easy to learn, well known form which many references to exist for).

The uniform color for Ku style/Yang style Tai Chi is black shirt and pants with black buttons. There are other colors for Tai Chi/Wushu uniforms, but those are other styles. Tai Chi is a style or type of Wushu. To tell you the truth, I really don't know what color the uniform is for Ku-style Tai Chi. I'm thinking it's Sky Blue or Light Blue, but I'm not really sure.
Yes and no; its martial aspects are completely, and I mean completely reliant on the manipulation of chi energy. Hence if the style is not COMPLETELY mastered, TRULY mastered, its useless for fighting. It can nevertheless be used to enhance focus, and overall athleticism, especially for OTHER martial arts. Paradoxically, Yang Tai Chi is both the weakest AND the most powerful of all Kung Fu styles, if you believe that chi energy stuff. Truly mastering Tai Chi though can take decades.
