Symbolism of Cranes in China

In China, the crane bird is considered the prince of all feathered creatures. It’s the second most appearing bird symbol right after the phoenix and represents longevity, wisdom, nobility, and peace.

Cranes also represent long-lasting love and loyalty, as they always stay with one partner until death. This is why two cranes are shown on the teapot instead of just one.

As people regard cranes as positive symbols, you’ll also often see cranes in Chinese art such as paintings.
