If you have any questions about this kanji, or would like to write a sample sentence using it, please do so below. Your comment will appear in the forum for other users of the site to view and discuss.

This entire kanji is one 8 stroke radical. I remember it like this:

The LEADER has a banner and a LONG hat.

-> the top part of the kanji resembles the banner, the bottom looks like a warrior holding it and the long central stroke looks like his hat.
