What is the crest of the Hongwanji?

 

It is derived from the flower of the wisteria 紫藤 plant. The wisteria blooms with it’s head hanging down from a trestle. Thus, the wisteria crest symbolizes humble reverence before Amida Buddha.

 

An example can be seen locally in Sierra Madre, California in March (and that wisteria plant is named by the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest blossoming plant in the world, just for your information).
