From ancient times the lotus has been a divine symbol in Asian traditions representing sexual purity , a virtue .

In Buddhist iconography, Buddha is often represented on a pink lotus. In Buddhist symbolism , the lotus represents purity of the body, speech, and mind as if floating above the muddy waters of attachment and desire. It is also to be noted that most Buddhist Chinese , Hindu , Japanese , amongst other Asian deities are often are depicted as seated on a lotus flower. According to legend, Gautama Buddha was born with the ability to walk and everywhere he stepped, lotus flowers bloomed.

Koi were developed from common carp in Japan in the 1820s, and are still very popular there as they are a symbol of  love and friendship.
The word 'koi' comes from Japanese , simply meaning "carp." It includes both the dull grey fish and the brightly colored varieties.
