Magpie is a kind of bird loved by people since ancient times. It is a symbol of good luck and a symbol of happiness. In the eyes of Confucianism, sages and gentlemen are like magpies. They have perseverance, determination, clarity, perseverance and consistency. Because the ancients believed that the magpie would always make a beautiful sound, no matter whether it sang happily or sadly, whether it was on the ground or on the branches, whether it was old or young, and its cry also symbolized a beautiful meaning.
