  • The hummingbird symbol also appeared in the movie Benjamin Button. If you don’t know already, the hummingbirds can fly backwards, just like Benjamin Button was living backwards.
  • Aztec mythology: do you know that the hummingbirds are very related to the Aztec mythology? The aztec people used to wore hummingbird talismans/amulets. These type of talismans represent energy, prosperity, etc. The Huitzilopochtli Aztec god was also related with a hummingbird.
  • Hummingbird feathers: do you know that, in the past, the feathers were used to decorate articles? Mostly because they were beautiful.
