The Koi Fish is based on ancient Japanese legend; if a koi succeeded in climbing the falls at a point called Dragon Gate on the Yellow River it would be transformed into a dragon.
Based on the Japanese legend, it became a symbol of worldly aspiration and advancement.

Because of its strength and determination to overcome obstacles, it stands for courage and the ability to attain high goals.

Others say it means good fortune or luck, hence the popularity of this beautiful mystical fish.

So basically it stands for;

* advancements, improvements, and ambitions
* courage to surpass all the challenges of life
* determination and endurance in critical situations
* good luck in almost everything
* independence and freedom
* strength to withstand the test of time
* strong character and identity
