The phoenix is the king of birds in ancient legends. Noble in spirit, commanding winds and clouds, handsome and many-colored, the phoenix perfectly symbolizes the culture and spirit of Hubei.
Hubei's capital, Wuhan, stands in the center of China. For centuries it has been the largest goods distribution hub on the middle reaches of the Yangtze River, a center of trade and commerce. Wuhan is a communications crossroads too, its enviable accessibility writing splendid chapters in the city's development.
The Yellow Crane Tower has been destroyed and rebuilt many times over the course of history. It still stands magnificent today. This land of Hubei nurtured the splendid culture of ancient Chu. Today its people, descendants of King Zhuang of Chu, are going all out to win, keen to perform on China's economic stage and to show what they can do.
