The flamingo is a animal elegant and popular, currently widely used in decorations, clothing prints, pictures, and accessories, usually associated with the tropical climate, the sea, vacations, and the beach. They are very sociable animals and live in huge flocks. Their plumage has shades of pink and salmon, a very characteristic coloring due to their diet, which is rich in carotenoids, a type of pigment found in algae and crustaceans.
Due to its curious and exuberant appearance, the bird has been adopted by some places as a local symbol: in the Bahamas, it is a symbol of national bird and peace of mind; in Florida, it is a symbol of refinement and ostentation; and in the Lagoa do Peixe National Park in Brazil, an environmental preservation area.
Within shamanism, the flamingo is connected to the ability to reach lessons of the soul through color. The animal teaches one to move forward in life, living in balance in society.
In the spiritual world, it is considered a transmitter of light. It represents the ascending soul, the path through darkness to reach the light.
Within Egyptian culture, the flamingo was believed to be the personification of Ra, the god of Sun.
According to Feng Shui, placing an image or sculpture of a flamingo in the southern area of the residence can bring good luck and prosperity.
