Chinese characters are not only the symbolic system of recording Chinese, but also the cultural link of national unity. Chinese characters cannot be assimilated in the ocean of letter characters, on the one hand, due to the barrier of geographical environment, Chinese characters have long enough space for development; on the other hand, Chinese characters have developed from sacrifice and etiquette functions to an effective tool for the national maintenance and unity. The Chinese character standardization measures taken by the past dynasties in China strengthened the management and rule of the country and enhanced the sense of national identity. Through the concrete practice of New China, Chinese characters have been reborn and become the cornerstone of Chinese cultural confidence. With the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, Chinese characters will also usher in a new opportunity for development.
