Know Your Gotei 13 Division and Their Captains from Bleach

Here's a guide to your original Gotei 13 Protection Squad from the manga and anime series BLEACH. The chart features what they each stand for, the flower they represent and their respective captains.

The art is plain glorious. It was done by tanathe.

Here's the text that was posted on top of the chart:

Each division of the Gotei 13 beside the assigned number has also a flower insignia called Taishou (隊章) representing their motto. Captains have a special seal on their body in its shape and vice-captains often wear a badge called Fukukanshou (副官章) on their arm which also has that flower motif.

First Division (一番隊)
Flower: 菊 Kiku - Chrysanthemum
Motto: "Truth and Purity"
True meaning of flower: abundance and wealth
