The fish is also a Christian symbol and over the years has become a symbol of religion. At baptism, the baptized person dives like a fish under the surface of the water. Fish in Greek means "Ichthys", which is the initial letters of Jesus Christ the Son of God Savior. In addition, fish is considered a particularly modest and moderate food, because the consumption of meat was forbidden on fasting days. Believers are therefore to commemorate the sacrificial death of Jesus while eating fish.
