1 x Carp Flag
The carp was chosen as a symbol for Boys' Day,
because the Japanese consider it is the most spirited fish — so full of energy and power
that it can fight its way up swift-running streams and cascades.
Because of its strength and determination to overcome all obstacles,
it stands for the courage and the ability to attain high goals.
Since these are traits desired in boys,
families traditionally flew Koinobori from their homes to honor their sons.
