Religiously rainbows symbolize different spiritual elements of life. According to the Jewish religion, a rainbow is used to celebrate the diversity of life on Earth and that God would never flood the Earth again. However, that doesn’t mean that humanity can’t flood the Earth in a harmful way. We all need to remember that we share this planet with many living things and that we need to preserve all life on earth as best we can.
In the Chinese culture, the rainbow represents a bridge by a double-headed dragon as the mediator between Heaven and Earth. With the double heads the dragon is able to hear the prayers of the people on Earth and send it forth to the Heavens.
