According to legend, Shun (舜) was one of the greatest emperors of ancient China. Before Shun became an emperor, he was a farmer growing rice in George Zhang’s hometown Jinan, the capital city of Shandong Province. Today, the Chinese people are remembering and celebrating Shun as a role model for humility, kindness, and integrity. Yi (裔) translates to “descendant.” The residents of Jinan, including George Zhang, are proud to be called descendants of Shun or Shunyi (舜裔).
