An iconic symbol of Okinawa is the Yaeyama traditional weave known as “minsa”. The underlying meaning of minsa involves a play on words with the numbers “5” and “4”. The woman weaves a sash intertwining designs of 5 and 4 marks. "Itsu” (5) and “Yo” (4) = “itsu mademo aishiteru" ("Love you forever"). Horizontal lines along each border represent a centipede-like pattern which expresses her wish that her beloved returns often.
