Meaning of the CRANE:
A crane is not only beautiful,
but has a traditional meaning:
For a long time the cranes
(Japanese Tsuru / つ る / 鶴)
in Japan are known as symbols for a long life.
There is accordingly the saying:
„The crane lives a thousand years, the turtle ten thousand years / 鶴 は 千年, 亀 は 万年“.
Therefore, cranes are used as a symbol
of „long time“ or „eternal“.
