What does phoenix rising from the ashes mean

I decided to write this post inspired by the beautiful Conchita Wurst’s song ”Rise Like A Phoenix”. This song was Eurovision Song Contest winner 2014.

In Greek mythology, phoenix is a long-lived bird that cyclically regenerates or is otherwise born again. Associated with the sun, phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor. Phoenix rises from the cloud of darkness, and from the sacred ashes of her honor. Great in fame as she was, before.


This expression symbolizes that he or she has arisen from flames as a
rebirth , beating all life challenges and defeating hard times. Therefore, phoenix is a symbol of rebirth from the ashes of the past.


Phoenix represents transformation, strength and renewal. In other words it represents something new that has been born from something that has been destroyed.
