LEAPING THE DRAGON GATE

On the Yellow River at Hunan is a waterfall called the Dragon Gate. It is said that if certain carp called Yulong can climb the cataract they will transform into dragons. Every year in the third month of spring they swim up from the sea and gather in vast numbers in the pool at the foot of the falls. It used to be said that only seventy one could make the climb in any year. When the first succeeded, then the rains would begin to fall. This Dragon Gate was said to have been created after the Flood by the god-emperor Yu who split a mountain blocking the path of the Yellow River.

This banknote features the tale of carps turning into a dragon. This ancient tale is supposed to be about carps leaping and crossing over "Dragon Gate" to transform into the dragon. It is a symbolic meaning of the ability to resist hurdles and achieving success. The carp is a tough fish that could resist big currents in China's ancient Yellow River. It represents the attributes of perseverance and determination. They are able to persistently resist hardship, swim upstream and rapidly jumping above the water to reach heaven to symbolize great achievements in ones pursuit or high ambitions of a lifetime.
