Fu means good luck and the reason that the character is placed upside down is that it is believed that that by placing it upside down will cause the good fortune to literally pour out on the home, office or building in which it is placed.

The story of Upside-Down Fu

This fascinating tradition that has been around for many years may have actually come about from a simple mistake!

I couldn’t find any information on the exact date but during one Chinese New Year, a family in China placed the (fú /foo) symbol on the diamond upside down as a mistake and without realising, they placed it on the front of their home. The family had now placed the sign up and on the first day of Chinese New Year when people came to their home and saw the sign with the upside-down Fu symbol, they would say to them “你们的福倒了!” which means ‘Your fu is upside down!’.

(dao /daoww/) means ‘to invert’ which can also be translated as “To pour out” which started the tradition of having the Fu symbol upside down as it would be read as “having your blessing poured out on your home”.

This year, we have designed a Fu sign for you to download for free to place outside your home or office on Chinese New Year’s eve and you should leave this up until the day after Chinese New Year’s Day.

    1. Hi Margaret,

      I’m afraid we don’t have physical copies of the Fu symbol although we have a lot of people download the image and take it to their local stationary store to print out on thick card.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel
