In Japan the cherry blossom commonly represents clouds, this is due to the way they bloom en masse. They also serve as a symbol of natural life- symbolism steeped in Buddhist influence.

As a flower the cherry blossom has a brief but beautiful period of flowering before a sharp fading and scattering of petals, such a cycle has seen the cherry blossom strongly associated with mortality! The petals in the wind a symbol of the fragile state of human existence and the short life of the blossom a reminder of the time frame life exists on. Through the course of World War II the cherry blossom was used in Japan as a tool of motivation, the flower was often used as a sign of national pride and rallied patriotism in the population!
