Symbols of BlackBird

Related Stuff: At first, this post was meant to be a Happy post. Somehow it turned out to be something different. Anyway, if this post managed to convince you to change your view to something positive, Smile and Be Happy.


Crows...Crows are dark creatures symbolizing bad omen. Some say they are representation of hell, some say they are symbols of gossip. In India, Crows are seen as Messengers of Death. Could it be their dark feathery feature which made them into such fearful creatures?

Think again. Never conjure an impression based on one strong negative feature.

Crows...they fly higher than those who rely purely on legs. The ability to fly is a symbol of freedom and achievement. Therefore it can be said that crows are Supreme Being capable great things.
- In North America, Crows are personification of Supremacy. When it flaps, their wing creates the wind, thunder and lightning.
- In Black Africa, Crows are like a protector spirit acting as guides to men warning them of dangers that lay ahead.
- In Japan, Crows are seen as a divine messenger.
- In Qing Dynasty are like a royal bird, the emperor instruct that no one can hurt or kill crows. [Source: PinkLeo]

Instead of focusing on a negative habit of a person, Isn't it easier to respect a person based on their positive abilities?

Depending on how you look at it, a blackbird can be a symbol of fear, or a symbol of greatness.
To a great photographer, 3 black bird can be a symbol of happiness.

Pink Leo said...

oh o...u made me tekan liao... i scare my information will 'wu ren zi di' (mislead the others) becoz I can't remember correctly.

I saw it in the HK drama 'Jin Zhi Yu Nie' (War and the beauty) and once in a documentary of Qing Emporer.

I tried to find in google but somehow I can't get the full historical fact.

I will try again at home (when I can type in Chinese words) so that I don't give wrong facts to you. :)

Ok?

3POINT8 said...

[PinkLeo]
I have a feeling that your facts are correct. I came across an article saying that japan treat crows the same as china, a divine messenger. Just that I have no idea which dynasty is that...

Pink Leo said...

Ok, I found many articles the relate crows and first Qing emporer in Chinese site. Basically crows rescued the first Qing emporer from enemy's hunt, therefore Qing emporer orders that no one can harm crows.

除了出生時烏鴉盤旋於屋頂上,皇太極與烏鴉的緣分不止於此。皇太極繼位後第三年,親率十萬大軍直撲明朝首都北京,與明軍追逐至蒙古沙漠。當時皇太極身邊的人多已戰死,見明軍追趕將至,在束手無策的情況下,皇太極索性下馬躺在地上不掙扎。此時,突然有一大群烏鴉舖天蓋地而來,將他團團圍住,遠處的明軍見狀,以為皇太極已被烏鴉分食而死,便班師回朝。皇太極因此躲過一劫,回朝後便立刻下令將烏鴉列為神聖之物,從今不准捕殺。
皇太極是歷史上承先啟後的關鍵人物,他帶領後金從原始社會走向農業文明,也建立了清朝。
