The significance of the phoenix in Chinese culture, by the best restaurant in Zetland

In the Chinese culture there are many different animals that have significance and meaning to Chinese people. The best restaurant in Zetland will tell you all about the phoenix and its significance to the Chinese culture.

The phoenix of the Chinese legend is a symbol of heaven’s favour, viture and grace, luck and happiness. It is worshipped as one of the four sacred creatures presiding over China’s destinies. The four animals are:

• Dragon
• Tiger
• Unicorn
• Phoenix

They are called ‘si ling’, but over thousands of years, very few animals were added to this sacred list. The placement of the phoenix on decorations and other photos were all based around feng shui and seeing how it is a sacred animal, we named one of the best restaurants in Zetland after it!
