The phoenix lives in the Chinese Parasol Tree. The parasol tree is the king of all trees and is known for its sturdiness. Once upon a time, the phoenix was only a normal looking bird. Being extremely diligent and conscientious, it possessed the good habit of gathering and accumulating fruits that were thrown away by other birds. The fruits were stored safely in its own nest. One bad season, the bird kingdom was truck by a drought and this had caused shortage of food. The phoenix offered its storage and as a gesture of gratitude, every bird plucked a feather to be presented to the phoenix. This being the reason why the phoenix has the most beautiful feathers compared to any other bird and is revered as the king of all birds. On the phoenix’s birthday, birds will flock to congratulate the phoenix, which expresses the sentiment “birds adoring the phoenix”.

Health denotes longevity while relationship denotes national relationship with ministers and other states.
