The story of the Phoenix, a bird that rises from the ashes of its own destruction, can be traced as far back as Ancient Egypt. What we now call a Phoenix was originally called the Bennu bird by Egyptians, who also associated it with their sun god Ra. According to their stories, the Bennu created itself from the fire of a sacred tree. When it reached the end of its life-cycle, it built a nest of cinnamon sticks and set itself on fire. From the ashes, a new bird emerged. The story of the Bennu was closely related to the rise and fall of the Nile and the Egyptian calendar, further connecting it to the idea of death and resurrection.

The Greeks later adapted the symbology of the Bennu and associated it with their city Phoenicia. The city of Phoenicia was known for producing and exporting purple dye, which was one of the most expensive dyes in the ancient world. In Greek mythology, the bird became known as The Phoenix and was associated with the color purple and nobility. According to their mythology, the bird also went through endless births and rebirths by lighting itself on fire. The Phoenix also remained associated to the sun through their god Apollo, who was said to stop his sky chariot each day in order to listen to its beautiful songs. Many subsequent cultures have carried on the legend of the Phoenix and it is now a strong symbol for personal growth, resonating with humankindu0092s aspirations.
