Relationship harmony is something each of us strives for. Swans mate for life, raise their nestlings together, and therefore symbolize fidelity and goodwill. They sense and recognize each other unmistakably at a great distance. These delicate birds remain where their other half died until their last breath. The legendary, amazing devotion of these beautiful creatures serves as a model of mutual understanding between man and woman. A romantic touch is added in the suggestion that it was the two swans, which swam toward each other, that inspired the symbol of love — the heart. An image of a pair of swans, symbolizing deep affection and all-conquering love, would be the perfect gift for a loved one on a wedding anniversary or Valentine's Day.
