Left/upper radical is 'fluttering flag'. Right/lower radical is 'twisting creature', which here acts phonetically to express 'wave/billow'. This character originally referred to a 'billowing flag'; current meanings are borrowed. Henshall suggests taking the left/upper radical as 'side' (方) and 'person' (人), and as a mnemonic: 'Person shows charity to twisting creature at side.'
