THE WU MEI PLUM BLOSSOM LOGO
The five petals represent the five extremities - head, two arms, and two legs, their movement ranges, and the five elements - metal, earth, fire, water, and wood. The eight stamens represent the eight trigrams and eight directions.
The stamens are equal in length from the center, representing Wu Mei Pai's principle of force in all directions. The small dot at the end of the stamens represent the release of force out of the extremity but still within the range of movement.
The plum blossom blooms in the Winter (February) and appears without leaves. This flower therefore represents strength under adversity. It is the national flower of former Republic of China in Taiwan.
