These beautiful carp windsocks are displayed outside of homes to wish sons a good future. The banners diminish in size from the top to the bottom of the pole, each boy in the family represented by a different banner. Carp are the most spirited of fish, fighting their way up swift-running rivers. This quality makes them the ideal symbol of courage and determination that has associated them with Boys Day (Tango no Sekku). May 5 is now designated as Children's Day, and courage and determination can be emulated by boys and girls!
