The Cherry Blossom has different meanings according to the Japanese and Chinese cultures. For the Chinese, they represent power and strenght, and since the blossoms are very delicate, it's usually given the meaning of female strenght. Is also a symbol of love. For the Japanese, they represent the transcience of life, it is related with the Buddisth belief that is not noble to get attached to life because all is transitory and will pass in time.
