Signs play a a major role in communication. During my visit to Gent, there were two swans on the building that hosts Marriott hotel. The building is a remnant of the past. Thankfully, it has been maintained well.
Swans are a symbol of love. This was told to me by a guide. On thinking more about it, I agree with it. Wasn’t there a story we heard in our childhood where swan played the go-between?
If you look carefully, the swans are not facing each other. If the swans face each other, it means love. When the swans are not facing each other, it means paid love. Yes, the building was a brother in the old days.
