Koi Fish and bold geometric images.

Koi means carp in Japanese and includes both the dull grey fish and the brightly colored varieties. It symbolizes male strength and individualism.  The koi fish swimming upstream is a strong image meaning strength and courage & is portrayed on Japanese Boy's Day banners. Koi are considered to be the most energetic of fishes because they are constantly on the move. The koi is able to swim upstream by overcoming strong water currents, thus making it a symbol of strength, heroism and bravery.  Koi are also associated with good fortune or luck and perseverance in adversity and strength of purpose.
