Koi fish symbolism (pronounced coy fish) is common in both Chinese culture and feng shui, depicted on artwork, clothing, tattoos, and even with live fish used in landscape design. By knowing the koi meaning and long history, you can more easily understand why people revere this beautiful fish so deeply.
Koi are an ancient and worldly fish. Their fossils date back 20 million years. This ancient fish was one of the earliest forms of aquatic life known today. While many think koi are a Japanese fish, they actually originated in Central Asia. From there, these carp descendants were consumed for food. Koi got their name around 500 BC in China. Legend has it that a son of Confucius was also given a fish named Koi around this time. Koi made their journey from China to Japan with Chinese invaders. The Japanese have since refined the art of koi breeding.
