Sakura is the Japanese term for the Cherry Blossom Tree.

The design depicts a fall storm in Japan when cherry trees around the country are in blossom.

Japanese turn out in large numbers at Hanami festivals to celebrate the beauty of the Sakura at parks, shrines and temples for flower-viewing parties.

The custom of Hanami dates back centuries with festivals being held as early as the third century CE.

In 1912 to celebrate Japan's growing friendship with the United States a gift of 3,020 cherry blossom trees was made which were planted in Sakura Park, Manhattan.

The gift was renewed with another 3,800 trees in 1965.

There are now collections around the country of flowering Japanese cherry trees in the tens of thousands.

The International Cherry Blossom Festival in Macon, Georgia, features the largest with over 300,000 cherry trees.
