The crane, is an ancient Japanese symbol of long-life, hope, good luck and happiness.
The legend says that if 1000 cranes are folded, then a person who is ill will regain health.
Sadako Sasaki was a young Japanese girl who suffered from leukemia because of the atomic bomb dropped over Hiroshima when she was two years old.

She believed the legend that if she could fold 1000 cranes, she would get well and her dreams of a long life would come true.
However, she was only able to fold 644 paper cranes before she died.
Her school friends continued to fold 356 paper cranes on her behalf and scattered these cranes to the winds in the hope that Sasaki's story would inspire the world.
