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.
