At Dragon's Gate

In Japanese culture, this fish represents strength and courage for swimming against the stream.

Climbing the Dragon Gate III by ~puimun    In Chinese and Japanese legend the lowly carp spends its life trying to swim up the Yellow River. At the source of the river is a great roaring waterfall. If the koi were able to swim up that waterfall, it would be rewarded and transformed into a dragon. Thus, the koi is a symbol of personal advancement, perseverance, determination in the face of impossible obstacles, and inner strength.
