Koinobori (carp streamer) are carp-shaped windsocks. In Japan they are raised to celebrate Tango No Sekku, a traditional event which is now a National Day, Kodomo No Hi (Children’s Day) occurring the 5th of May.
In Japanese culture, they symbolize courage and strength because of their ability to run up rivers and cascades. A legend tells that they are also capable of flying away and transforming into a dragon. Families set up koinobori in order to bring good health and success to their children.
This typical koinobori set is composed of a colorful streamer (fukinagashi), followed by a black koinobori representing the father and a red koinobori representing the mother. A blue koinobori is used to embody the child.
