The naming of urban subway stations is not just a name or a symbol, looking further ahead, it also contains deep cultural meanings in semantics, as well as Nanchang metro stations. In the perspective of its connotation, it includes semantic meaning as well as abundant cultural connotation. From the view of its features, at first, it has the beauty of rhythm and melody. Besides, it is not only harmonious in matching level and oblique tones, but also very concise. In addition, it shows its charm in humanity and nature as well as its rich history. Seeing from the vision demonstrated in the name of Nanchang subway station, the subway stations in Nanchang were named after its local cities as well as cities of other province in China. What’s more, it blends celebrities in the history and the contemporary lifestyle together, thus demonstrating its unique spirit. Indeed, as a city where the army flag was raised, Nanchang has witnessed the event that the Nationalist Party was resisted by the armed Communist Party in 1927, which opened up the glorious military history of the communist party of China. However, it is a pity that the red culture related to this event was not fully embodied in the name of the subway stations, which is extremely unworthy of Nanchang, the "hero city of the world", hence hoping that this regret can be remedied in the future.
