The butterfly is a symbol of transformation because of its impressive process of metamorphosis. From egg, to larvae (caterpillar), to pupa (the chrysalis or cocoon) and from the cocoon the butterfly, after much work and transformation, emerges in unfurling glory. In heraldry the butterfly is a symbol of freedom and the soul.
