      I had a version with it on both wings actually and wasn't sure which
      would be more correct. So, that actually helps me decide which of the
      two to submit.

      I was going with the ephemeral quality of life that sakura represent.
      They're considered beautiful and are short lived, butterflies are
      considered beautiful and short lived, both things quite delicate, as
      well as the possible visual representation of falling sakura being
      similar to the flight of butterflies. I may be stretching way too
      hard there, or I might not understand what correct connections should
      be, so if that doesn't work, then maybe you could give me an example
      or two of appropriate connections. : )

      I'm not familiar with creating a device at all, I don't understand
      exactly what that means. Does it mean the way the butterfly is turned?

      Thanks for your help.
