Carp Streamer

Banderín de carpa

Carp streamers (koinobori banners) are flown on Children's Day in Japan, a national holiday. The holiday was originally a celebration of boys and is still sometimes referred to as "Boy's Day." Boys and girls are now celebrated on Children's day. A carp is a type of fish that typically swims and feeds at the bottom of a body of water. The largest carp (fish) streamer is meant to symbolize the father, the medium carp the mother, and any smaller carp the number of children in the household. A celebration held on May 5th for children and those that take care of children.
