A rare and beautiful Qing Dynasty period Roof tile in the form of a Rooster 7 Things Roosters Symbolize in China - From Punctuality to Prosperity By Fercility JiangUpdated Mar. 18, 2021 The Chinese Zodiac Sign Rooster Besides being the tenth sign of the Chinese zodiac (popular in the year of the Rooster 2017), the rooster is symbolic of seven things in China. Punctuality and Honesty In traditional Chinese culture, the rooster's most obvious symbolic meaning was punctuality and honesty. In ancient times, even though you could calculate the time roughly using some simple timers, there was no tool like an alarm clock to help you wake up in the morning. People could hear roosters crowing every dawn. Thus the rooster's crow was taken as signaling the beginning of a new day.
