KOI - tee


Its name, Koi fish, originates from the Japanese name Nishikigoi, which translated means 'brocaded carp'. ... Because 'Koi' in Japanese is a homophone for another word meaning love and affection, the Koi fish is often a symbol of love, friendship, and commitment. But it also stands for loyalty, strength, ambition but also for Wisdom. Koi is the national fish of Japan.
