Christian Peacock Symbol According to legend, in times of famine, the mother pelican draws blood from her chest and blood and have a chicken. Pelican therefore a symbol of Christianity, also known as the pelican in her country - piety, and a symbol of the sacrifice of Christ on the Cross (for giving his blood to others), and the Eucharist (as is the blood of Christ, and provides mental PSU). Legend of the pelican old, and a few differences.
The little pelicans strike their parents, and the parents, striking back, kill them. But on the third day the mother pelican strikes and opens her side and pours blood over her dead young. In this way they are revivified and made well.

So Our Lord Jesus Christ says also through the prophet Isaiah: 'I have brought up children and exalted them, but they have despised me' (Is 1:2). We struck God by serving the creature rather than the Creator. Therefore He deigned to ascend the cross, and when His side was pierced, blood and water gushed forth unto our salvation and eternal life.

Was adopted by Christianity in the 2nd, when it appears in the Physiologus, a Christian adaptation of the popular myths and symbols of animal. Has become a popular myth in Christian art, at a later time, and many writers, including Shakespeare:
"To his good friend thus wide, I'll ope my arms
And, like the kind, life-rendering pelican
Repast them with my blood." (Hamlet, 1616)
