~A Koi stands for strenght, wisdom, perseverance and good luck.The history of Koi fish is believed to originate from eastern Asia, in the Black, Caspian, Aral Seas and China. But now they are completely embedded in the full eastern Asian culture. The legend surrounding the carp is symbolic for ultimate perseverance and strenght. To keep on going eventhough it seems to be pointless. In the legend a group of onehundred Koi tried to swim upstream the Yellow river and up the falls at Dragongate. Only one succeeded and he was transformed into a dragon as a reward.
