The butterfly is a symbol of the soul, immortality, rebirth and resurrection, and the ability to transform because this winged celestial creature comes into the world by transforming from a caterpillar. It is believed that the most cherished wish will come true if you hold a butterfly in your hand then let it fly off up to the sky. It is the embodiment of beauty and freedom and reminds us that life is transient and we should live it with lightness — being joyful and happy. It is a symbol of summer, and is an elegant, mysterious and incredibly beautiful insect. The ancient Greeks considered the butterfly a symbol of the soul's immortality. There is a nice custom in China whereby the groom presents the bride with a live butterfly as a sign of unwavering love. A great gift for a loved one!
