The Balance and Harmony Symbol in America

What do these two images have in common?

The Yin and Yang Symbol. In the COEXIST logo it is the letter "S." The 80s Nintendo Game form Hawaii's Famous T&C Surf Designs Wood & Water Rage the Yin & Yang Symbol can be found on the surf board.

The Yin & Yang Symbol is quite old, older than America and perhaps older than some Biblical Figures. In the United States it is dominantly a counter culture symbol, symbol of the groovy, common in martial arts, and modestly represents Chinese American culture.
