Known to me:
陰陽 - Yin and yang, a Chinese philosophical concept that describes opposite but interconnected forces. The symbol is a diagram of taijitu (太極圖). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yin_and_yang https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taijitu
福 - felicity, luck, good fortune.
祿 - wealth and prosperity.
壽 - life (length), also longevity.
