WHY ʺSUNFLOWERʺ?

Because we want to unite the society instead of classifying people: we are all members of a big society, despite social rank, abilities, property, and temperament. A sunflower is what perfectly depicts such a society. Many seeds - big and small, full and empty - are grouped together to form this beautiful big flower head. And despite their differences, they are all together as one beautiful flower that always strives towards the sun.
