Symbolism:

Butterfly - joy and conjugal felicity. Butterfly is pronounced in homonym with the word die which means a 80 years old. Two butterflies together is meant a wish of "longevity". "Die" is also pronounced similar to another word which means to "pile up" or "repeat" - and thus given the meaning "many".

Peony - Mu-Dan - Queen of Flowers, the peony is a emblem of wealth and distinction.
