The bird is generally associated with freedom, because it is free to roam the sky all over the world. Many cultures also believe that it symbolizes eternal life, and even links heaven and the earth. The ancient Egyptians thought that the bird symbol represents the soul leaving a person's body, and the Celtic people were certain that birds were messengers of the gods.
