Here is some info on the design used in our logo:

The bird motif is taken from a Chinese paper-cutting. The art of Chinese papercuts date from the first century A.D. The design used in the logo was made by is of 2 Phoenix. The phoenix is important in Chinese mythology and is commonly seen alongside the dragon. The Phoenix of Chinese legend is said to signify happiness and a joyous event. The phoenix represents the feminine essence and denotes beauty, delicacy of feeling, and peace. We were told that an image of a phoenix was appropriate to hang in a girl's room and an image of a dragon would be given to a boy. Later in life the phoenix and dragon combined would be given as common wedding gift to symbolise the happy couple.
