Koi Symbolism

The color of a koi symbolizes certain outcomes in our lives 

  • Kohaku - This koi has a white body with red spots and symbolizes success in your career.

  • Kumonryu - There are two main variations of this koi. One variation is a koi with a white body and black spots and the other has an all-black body. The Kumonryu koi symbolizes life changes and transformations.

  • Ogon - This solid, silver-colored koi symbolically represents success in business and wealth. 

  • Kuchibeni - This white and red patterned koi is often referred to as the “lipstick” fish, because the red coloring around its mouth makes it appear as though the fish is wearing lipstick. Kuchibeni koi represents love and long lasting relationships.

  • Yamabuki - The Yamabuki koi is gold in coloring and symbolizes riches and wealth.
