The Insignia for the 8th Division of the Gotei 13 is the Bird of paradise flower. The meaning behind this symbol is Everything is Obtained.

Special Duties

According to Shuhei Hisagi during an omake chapter, the 8th Division always turns in their reports on time, demonstrating the 8th Division's reliability. This reliability is probably due to Nanao Ise.
