Far Eastern Bat Symbolic Meanings

In the Far East, particularly China, the Bat represents good fortune and longevity. The number of Bats seen also has meaning. Two Bats are greater luck, and five represents the five blessings of long life, wealth, honor, health and a natural death. Feng Shui experts use bat symbols for attracting happiness and satisfying dreams.

Bats with gold coins in their mouth are often placed in the West or Northwest of a home to open Chi for a happy family and help from notable people. Hang it from your door to safeguard the house from sickness.

In Japan they are also a good omen. Bat symbols appear on various pieces of art to encourage wish fulfilment.
