During 2011 Chinese National Day, I saw this beautiful Lotus and Jade Flowers displayed near the South Gate, Temple of Heaven. Chinese has own beliefs and understanding of Lotus and Jade. The signboard was written as the following:

" Lotus is the symbol of loftiness and sanctity in people's heart. Jade is one of China's traditional sacrificial vessel. The combination of the two traditional elements creates a harmonious and poetic picture, meaning in the harmonious heyday, the country prosperous and the people at peace. "
