The Chinese people have a philosophical concept of happiness as “five fortune” and the Longevity symbol is one of the Chinese lucky symbol characters. The tradition of five fortune is said to have started in ancient times; records from the Tang Dynasty (600 A.D.) show many examples of these characters.
