Abstract

There is a close relationship between symbols and cultures, but the relationship between them and the derived relationship between cultural symbols and symbolic cultures still need to be reviewed. By analyzing from a new perspective of linguistic semiotics, this paper finds that cultural symbols refer to the signifier, representing cultural forms, while symbolic cultures refer to the signified, representing cultural meanings. Cultural symbols can spread, create and shape symbolic cultures, while the latter is the objectification of the former. Symbolic cultures and cultural symbols are the combination of forms and meanings, jointly constructing the cultural system.
