    interesting opinion, soulless.
    but if counted based on team, there would be only 3 stars to fullfil, Uber/Thomas, sudirman and OG. what are the 2 other stars stands for?

    I think a small star maybe given if the athlete represent the country multiple times in a winning effort. So if China won sudirman twice in four years, the athlete may get two. The big star, like I said stand for recognition and more subjective. Now my theory is less precise then others posted here, but everyone of them so far have been falsified.

    if we dontnknow the answer, some of the opinions might be correct.

    I agree the 5 stars are to do with the chinese flag in some way, and they relate to major champsmvictories.

    This is a company specifically for the Chinese players lining design, there are five stars, but the real star counts, each star represents a world championship title. Lin Dan game and served on the star most, a total of five, become the" five-star" admiral, and coach Li Yongbo shirt although there are five stars, but one big and four small and Lin Dan vary; like Cai Yun, Fu Haifeng has four stars.


    The five-star, on behalf of the badminton five traditional events: the Olympic Games, world championships, world cup, Su Diman cup and the thomas cup and uber cup . Each player gets a five tournament in Jersey on several titles, you can get a solid core of the pentagram!

    这款比赛服是由李宁公司赞助中国羽球队的,每位球员从外套到比赛服,右胸襟都绣着形状不同或实或虚的五颗星星。李永波解析说,这是李宁公司特意为中国球员设计的,都有五颗星,但实星才算数,每颗星都代表一个世界冠军的头衔。林丹比赛服上的星最多,共五颗,变成“五星”上将,而教练李永波的队服虽然也有五颗星,但一大四小与林丹有所不同;而蔡赟、傅海峰都有四颗星。

    The big star came from winning the Olympic Games. Zhang Ning might have 2 Big stars embedded at her Jerseys..

    Today, all the Chinese women players who were part of the winning Uber Cup squad have upgraded themselves by one star.

    A few of them notably:

    Wang Yihan : Four Star
    Wang Xin : Two Star
    Wang Shixian: Three Star
    Zhao Yunlei: Four Star
    Tian Qing: Two Star

    Li Xuerui : One Star

    Yu Yang actually have four stars while i am not sure about Wang Xiaoli..

    I dont think Yu Yang will be upgraded by one star since her missing major title is the Asian Games.

    Wang Xiaoli should be three stars i think

    No All England is important too but not as important as the other big majors..But to be recognised globally as a top player, you must win the All England. That is a mandatory achievement..

    Wang Lin ,Wang Xin and Chen Long are the only existing Chinese players that have not won the All England which i believe they will in due time. However the win wont be attributed as a Star

    Well from the Mainland Chinese perspective, winning All England is the stepping stone to achieving greater success on the international stage..

    That's how Lin Dan, Wang Yihan, Wang Shixian, Li Xuerui gained their international fame after winning the all england but it wont be counted as a star

    I thought the AE was comparable to Wimbledon for most players?

    Well you be the judge. I go with the majority that feels winning All England is compulsory for every top player. It's a shame Zhang Ning who won the gold twice in Olympics never get the chance to win it. The Chinese women singles are too competitive at that time.

    As for Taufik, to be honest nobody really cares about him because he has been defeated too many times and achieved nothing since 2006. Cant blame people for thinking that way

    Zhang Ning never achieved much success in major tournaments (World Championship for instance) but she did extremely well in SS and Grand Prix circuits throughout her career.

    Her Two time Olympic Gold Medals made up for her defeats in major tournaments like World Championships and All England.

    Zhao Yunlei and Wang Yihan both need an Olympic gold to be on the same greatness height level as Lin Dan as both of these girls have achieved so many or too many success in SS and major tournaments

    lol imagine Lin Dan with two maidens standing next to him to be idolized as well for completing a Grand Slam

    Yeah what i am saying is for her stature as a top class player, her performance in Worlds and All England championships never actually reflect her double OG gold medal status. She only achieved one success in the Worlds, other than that one, the rest are quite unexpected disappointing as she sometimes lets her teammates always get the best out of her
