"Key Chain “Fish“"

This metal key chain with the “Ichtys“ motif is available in blue.

The Icthys symbol comes from Greek and means “fish“. Early Christian used the fish during the times of persecution as a secret symbol of recognition. To be sure if present, unknown people were followers of Jesus or not they drew an arch in the sand. If the other person then completed the symbol with another arch to make the fish they revealed that they too were a Christian.

The fish wasn’t chosen at random, but rather has two meanings. Firstly, it refers Mark 1:17 where Jesus called upon Simon (who was later named Peter) and his brother Andrew while they were fishing in the Sea of Galilee to go with him and become fishers of men. As well as this, a type of profession of faith can be derived from the beginning letters of the Greek word:

I - Jesus

Ch - Christ [the "anointed", in Hebrew "Maschiach" (the Messiah)]

Th – God‘s

Y – Son

S – Saviour
