A Japanese kadomatsu, composed of pine leaves and bamboo shoots. Traditionally placed outside homes in Japan around the New Year to welcome spirits for a plentiful, happy year ahead.
Depicted as three shoots of bamboo, arranged vertically at different heights in a wooden container, arrayed with pine leaves.
Often used to represent various plants or as a green accent color.
WhatsApp’s kadomatsu is adorned with red berries, as is Facebook’s, which also includes pink cherry blossoms.
