Since मूलन is princess of the month, here some thoughts about which फूल fits her the best. The movie, after all, offers some choices. The most obvious one is the magnolia, since that’s the translation of the name Mulan.
Then there is the white फूल मूलन wears in her hair when she meets the matchmaker – the same फूल she leaves behind when she goes to war. I’m not sure what kind of फूल that’s suppose to be. I first considered lotus (since the lotus is such a reveled फूल in Asia and gets often connected to the gods), but a lotus has और petals. A white चेरी blossom would have exactly five petals, but they would be और round. There are some similarities with a white मैगनोलिया फूल या a lily, but again, both have और petals. My best guess is the azalea, अज़ेला - a white azalea, अज़ेला has five petals, looks very similiar, but even और important, in China they are a symbol for womanhood (they also symbolize taking care, temperance and fragility, और या less everything मूलन is expected to be).
And finally, the most important of all, the फूल her father points out to her. I originally assumed that they are sitting under a चेरी पेड़ – I think mostly because the चेरी blossom is such a big deal in जापान and there are festivals surrounding it in China, too. But the “Hanami” in जापान is the one with the long tradition, while China just was inspired द्वारा it. Plus, the longer I look at it, the और I get the impression that those blossoms are supposed to be magnolias.
आप can compare it yourself to the picture of some magnolias at the right, the similiarity is undeniable. Also it would make the whole scene so much और meaningful, if her father points out a late blooming "Mulan" instead of a बिना सोचे समझे flower. But the scripts of "Mulan" I have found so far don't specify, there is only "blossoms" written, so unless the animators give an answer, we'll never know for sure.
But I admit I like चेरी blossoms better for Mulan, since magnolias are fairly sensitive flowers, and मूलन is everything but sensitive. चेरी blossoms have three different meaning in the language of flowers: They stand for a good education, transience of life (Japan) and feminine beauty (China). All those meanings fit मूलन and her story nearly perfectly, although the meaning of magnolias (love of nature) works too.
In the end, I couldn’t really decide - So I made two wallpapers, one with चेरी blossoms and one with magnolias, to honor the beauty of a late blooming flower.
