Since 뮬란 is princess of the month, here some thoughts about which 꽃 fits her the best. The movie, after all, offers some choices. The most obvious one is the magnolia, since that’s the translation of the name Mulan.
Then there is the white 꽃 뮬란 wears in her hair when she meets the matchmaker – the same 꽃 she leaves behind when she goes to war. I’m not sure what kind of 꽃 that’s suppose to be. I first considered lotus (since the lotus is such a reveled 꽃 in Asia and gets often connected to the gods), but a lotus has 더 많이 petals. A white 체리 blossom would have exactly five petals, but they would be 더 많이 round. There are some similarities with a white 목련 꽃 또는 a lily, but again, both have 더 많이 petals. My best guess is the 진달래 - a white 진달래 has five petals, looks very similiar, but even 더 많이 important, in China they are a symbol for womanhood (they also symbolize taking care, temperance and fragility, 더 많이 또는 less everything 뮬란 is expected to be).
And finally, the most important of all, the 꽃 her father points out to her. I originally assumed that they are sitting under a 체리 나무, 트리 – I think mostly because the 체리 blossom is such a big deal in 일본 and there are festivals surrounding it in China, too. But the “Hanami” in 일본 is the one with the long tradition, while China just was inspired 의해 it. Plus, the longer I look at it, the 더 많이 I get the impression that those blossoms are supposed to be magnolias.
당신 can compare it yourself to the picture of some magnolias at the right, the similiarity is undeniable. Also it would make the whole scene so much 더 많이 meaningful, if her father points out a late blooming "Mulan" instead of a 랜덤 flower. But the scripts of "Mulan" I have found so far don't specify, there is only "blossoms" written, so unless the animators give an answer, we'll never know for sure.
But I admit I like 체리 blossoms better for Mulan, since magnolias are fairly sensitive flowers, and 뮬란 is everything but sensitive. 체리 blossoms have three different meaning in the language of flowers: They stand for a good education, transience of life (Japan) and feminine beauty (China). All those meanings fit 뮬란 and her story nearly perfectly, although the meaning of magnolias (love of nature) works too.
In the end, I couldn’t really decide - So I made two wallpapers, one with 체리 blossoms and one with magnolias, to honor the beauty of a late blooming flower.
