Need help with character on embroidered patch


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm having trouble with a character on an embroidered patch. It's the last of seven characters running up the left side of the patch.

Trying to figure out the characters from the embroidery was a challenge for me, but I'm pretty confident the first six are: chou3 丑, zhang4 丈, cheng2 丞, ji1 丌, qi1 七 and lin2 临. I can't figure out the last one, or even determine what the radicals are. I tried looking up under the radical 二 but no luck. Can anyone identify the elusive character for me, and (please, pretty please) tell me what radical(s) I should have been using to look it up?

Here are links to the patches in two different colors (they look slightly different, so perhaps one will be easier to actually discern the correct character):



Note: The characters as a phrase don't appear to have any meaning, which is strange, because other items made for the sci-fi TV show Firefly usually make sense when translated. (I have absolutely no clue about the Arabic. :grin: )
