Later generations used the "Jade Hall" to refer to the Hanlin Academy. "After the Golden Gate, there is a day to go to the Jade Hall" means that it is just around the corner for promotion. The term 'wealth and honor' comes from the Analects of Confucius - Yan Yuan: 'It is said that the merchants have heard of it, life and death are destined, and wealth and honor are in heaven.' It refers to the meaning of being wealthy and prominent. In later generations, the jade orchid symbolizes the jade hall, and the peony symbolizes wealth and honor. These two types of flowers borrow the
metaphor of "jade hall wealth and honor", wishing for a high position and prosperity.
