 Funstuff /Flora and Fauna/

If you haven't already noticed, every character in Cardcaptor Sakura has their favorite flower listed in their profile. You may be asking yourself why such information has been included, however, there is a good reason for this! Each character's favorite flower is important because it helps symbolize their relationships, their personality traits, and in some cases their magical aspects. The Kinomoto family in particular has all been named after flowers.

Name: Picture: Meaning: Favorite Flower:
Fujitaka Fujitaka - Wisteria Flower Wisteria Flower Cherry Blossom, Peach Blossom,
Wild Carnation
Nadeshiko Nadeshiko - Wild Carnation Wild Carnation Wisteria Flower, Peach Blossoms,
Cherry Blossoms
Sakura Sakura - Cherry Blossom Cherry Blossom Cherry Blossom
Touya Touya - Peach Blossom Peach Blossom Peach Blossom

Sakura's favorite flower is a cherry blossom– the flower she was named after. The same is also true for Touya whose name contains kanji for peach blossom. By appreciating the flowers that they were named after, we can see that Sakura and Touya are both very similar in terms of personality. By viewing Fujitaka's favorite flowers, we can see that he has a close relationship with his children and his spouse. The same is true for Nadeshiko. However, affection through flowers is not just limited to the Kinomoto family.

Character: Favorite Flower(s):
Masaki Amamiya Cherry Blossom, Wild Carnation
Sonomi Daidouji Wild Carnation
Tomoyo Daidouji Cherry Blossom

By viewing the chart above, we can see how the Kinomoto family relates to the Daidouji family. For example, Sonomi's favorite flower is a wild carnation which shows how much she cares for Nadeshiko. In addition, Tomoyo's love for cherry blossoms shows how much she cares for Sakura. Not only do these flowers show how the two families are linked together, but they also show how Tomoyo has taken after her mother because she, too, loves her cousin the most out of all people. Last but not least, the chart shows how Nadeshiko's grandfather, Masaki, cares for both his granddaughter and his great granddaughter (Sakura).

Character: Picture: Favorite Flower(s):
Rika Sasaki Rika & Terada - Daisy Daisy
Yoshiyuki Terada Daisy

Not only do flowers represent love for a person's family and friends, but they also symbolize romantic interests as well. For example, we can see that Sakura's friend, Rika Sasaki is interested in their homeroom teacher, Yoshiyuki Terada because they share the same favorite flower.

Character: Favorite Flower(s):
Clow Reed Cherry Blossom
Eriol Hiiragizawa Cherry Blossom
Kaho Mizuki Evening Primrose
Kero Sunflower
Nakuru Akizuki Moonlight Beauty

Flowers can also symbolize a character's magical aspects. For example, it is obvious that Eriol is Clow Reed's reincarnation because they share the same favorite flower. We can also see that Kaho's magical powers fall under the moon because her favorite flower is an evening primrose. The same is true for Nakuru whose favorite flower is a moonlight beauty. Finally, we can tell that Kero's magical powers come from the sun because his favorite flower is a sunflower.
