Meihua Quan (Chinese: 梅花拳; literally "Plum Flower Fist") is a very common name in kung fu:

Meihua is a Kung Fu term that originated in the northern provinces of China and is very popular among many schools of Chinese martial arts.

The plum blossom, which is known as the  meihua (梅花), is one of the most beloved flowers in China and has been frequently depicted in Chinese art and poetry for centuries. The plum blossom is seen as a symbol of winter and a harbinger of spring. The blossoms are so beloved because they are viewed as blooming most vibrantly amidst the winter snow, exuding an ethereal elegance,  while their fragrance is noticed to still subtly pervade the air at even the coldest times of the year. Therefore the plum blossom came to symbolize perseverance and hope, but also beauty, purity, and the transitoriness of life.  In Confucianism, the plum blossom stands for the principles and values of virtue.
