According to Greek mythology the Kingfisher is the protector of springs, mountains,
rivers and streams.

This special bird is specially adapted to hunt and catch fish by diving. The blue green plumage
is characteristic and is caused by the scattering of blue light by the feather structure
(Tyndall effect). The distribution of this bird is cosmopolitan throughout the world’s
tropical and temperate regions.

The Kingfisher is regarded as a symbol of peace and prosperity with the promise of abundance
with its association with the planet Jupiter.


Sailor proudly announces the second in the series of special "Waterfalls and Nature"

Ancient Japanese folklore tells of the very determined Koi Carp striving to reach the top

of the rapids of the Yellow river. The Koi Carp refused to give up and struggled on and

finally reached the top of the falls. The Gods approved of the continued efforts of this

heroic achievement and transformed the Carp into an eternal golden dragon.

Koi carp evoke images of energy, power and courage and are symbolic of perseverance

and endurance in overcoming adversity and finally achieving one’s goals in life. 

In celebration of this legend on May 5th every year Japanese families will fly carp streamers

in the wind ‘Kodomo no Hi’ –Children’s Day festival. The streamers represent the sending  of

one’s children into the wide world to achieve success through determination.
