Creating a logo for a society dedicated to a culture that is completely different compared to the de facto Chinese culture which is based on the Manchurian ethnic group which ruled China from 1644-1911 calls for a unique selling point of the society. The most unique aspect of the society is the costume which is aimed at promoting awareness of traditional "Hanfu" (Han Chinese clothing) dating back from Xia (2700 BCE) to Ming Dynasties (1644 CE). Therefore, some versions of the logo sketches such as 5, 6, 8, 9, 17, 18, 19, 21, 24, 30 and 36 explore identifiable features of the clothing with its Y-collar and broad sleeves.

You'll notice in the picture on the bottom far left of members wearing Hanfu with the Y-collar. There is a drastic difference compared to the Manchurian clothing which now is accepted as the de facto Chinese clothing. The minority has effectively wiped out Han clothing from the last ruling Han Chinese dynasty of Ming by forcing Han Chinese to wear a shave their head to wear a queue, a waist-long, braided pigtail as well as their clothing.
