In episode 6 of The Legend of Korra, "Korra Gets Cheated," Amon attacks the Pro Bending Championship.

Midway through his attack, his followers hang banners with his symbol throughout the arena.

What does the symbol stand for?

I noticed it looks symmetrical. Is it a Chinese symbol for equal or equality?


The character is 平 píng. It means equal, flat, or level. It can also mean calm or peaceful.

It is used in both Japanese and Chinese, and it can be used a both a verb, an adverb, and an adjective. It means level/flat (Google Translate).

  • I edited in the Google Translate screenshot because it is helpful to show all the meanings. Usually the text would be better but in this case I think a screenshot works well. – TheLethalCarrot Nov 22 '18 at 10:51
