That the Chinese character “本” (meaning origin) is the root of all creatures and that the character “溪” (meaning brook) is the source of the vast ocean waters have rendered Benxi with a literal interpretation. The two characters are still outstretching to represent the spirit of the city, which focuses on being honest, faithful, and doing all deeds from every little bit.
