I encountered this error while trying to compile my thesis. Before I did not have this error.

Any idea how I can find this Unicode character in my LaTeX document, or solve this issue?

\DeclareUnicodeCharacter{262F}{YIN YANG HERE!!!!!}

to your preamble, and search the output for that text. If you want it to display then find a yinyang.pdf image and do something like

Here is a solution with TikZ:

                            \draw[thick,fill=black] circle(1);
                            \fill[white] (0,-.5) circle(.1);
                            \fill[white] (0,-1) arc(-90:-270:.5) arc(-90:90:.5) arc(90:270:1) -- cycle;
                            \fill[black] (0,.5) circle(.1);

And here is the output:


EDIT: Just type [… ,rotate=-90] to get your desired yin-yang-character.
