The Crane is considered a sacred animal/ bird by many cultures. In Ireland and Wales, it is a totem that symbolizes Long Life, Equality & Wisdom.
Long life because it is known to have longevity and in mythology is will live a thousand years. Equality because it one of the few birds whereby both male and female equally share the care, protection, teaching and training of their young. Wisdom because the crane is considered a messenger from the other worlds bringing gifts of knowledge, awareness and the wisdom of the gods.
Celtic mythology states that the god Ogma invented the Ogham script after observing the flight of the cranes. Thus, the cranes symbolize secret knowledge that is represented in the Druid tradition by the Ogham script. The Ogham script is a tree language, the language of nature. Anyone who can read them can understand the wonders of nature.
