  • i would further say that, it’s lotus flower, and half lotus root. both are symbols related to summer 😸 Feb 2, 2023 at 1:46

    @水巷孑蠻 not root, but lotus leaf and lotus pod. english is more picky about the plant names :) lotus root would only be 藕 as commonly used and not lotus in general

  • @zagrycha , oooops, my fault 😹thanks for correcting me 😸 Feb 2, 2023 at 9:31
  • @水巷孑蠻 no worries, it is hard when the words are almost the same but can't be used the same way in the other language.

It was properly answered by multiple of us in the comments. Just typing an actual answer to make it official:

As tang ho said, it says summer solstice aka 夏至 written vertically top to bottom on the right of the image. the left of the image is an artistic depiction of a lotus seed pod, two lotus flowers, and a lotus leaf pad-- as discussed by myself and 水巷孑蠻.

  • Thank you everyone 💞
