Origami, also called origami, refers to the set of techniques applied to transform a sheet of paper into a geometric or representative figure of some object, natural or artificial. To make it, you should use a folded paper, uncut, and without glue.

In the rest of the world, the word origami is used, with Japanese root, formed by 'ori' (fold) and 'kami' (paper). The origami concept also covers folding techniques of any material, not just paper: fabric, plastic, metal...

Some of the oldest models of origami are the box of Santa Águeda, the airy bow tie or the Japanese crane ('tzuru' in Japanese), to which this seal comes to pay homage. This crane is an iconic model for Japanese tradition. In the West, however, the "mechanical flapping bird" is better known, popularized from its presentation at the Universal Exhibition in Paris, in 1889.

According to an ancient Japanese folk legend, he who folds a thousand cranes of paper gets from the gods a favor, such as recovery from a long illness. The paper crane has also become a symbol of peace, with the story of a girl from Hiroshima, Sadako Sasaki, who came to fold almost 1500 cranes to ask for the recovery of sick children, her hospital companions. In the peace park of his Hiroshima a monument to Sadako was erected, in which every year children from Japan and other parts of the world hang thousands of cranes, to pray that children around the world are not affected by wars.

In Zaragoza, every year the day of peace is celebrated on August 6 and the members of the Grupo Zaragozano de Papiroflexia go to the Plaza del Pilar to give paper cranes to everyone who passes by, to keep this tradition alive. Meanwhile, inside the Basilica del Pilar, the Virgin wears the mantle that the Zaragoza Group of Origami gave her. This is the only paper mantle where they are seen. two bow ties, symbol of peace in Spain.<br/>
