The Legends Behind the Rainbow and Pot of Gold

by Luckables Staff |

Lucky symbols have many different interpretations. In this blog series, you'll learn about some of the myths and stories behind these highly recognized symbols of luck. We hope you enjoy learning the backstory of how your Luckable earned its lucky status.


The symbolism of rainbows have been celebrated in many cultures throughout history. Rainbows are not only a beautiful natural phenomenon, but they're full of positive signs and spiritual meanings. Rainbows bring the promise of hope, new beginnings and peace. Typically seen after a storm, rainbows bring a message that bright and beautiful times are ahead. Because rainbows are inclusive of many colors, rainbows also represent love and acceptance. Some cultures even believe that rainbows are a bridge between the physical and spiritual worlds. 

Thanks to Irish folklore, the story of finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow has been around for centuries. According to legend, mischievous leprechauns found abandoned gold and buried it at the end of the rainbows so it could never be found again. Unfortunately, science tells us that rainbows don't actually have an end since their arch shape is an illusion! Rainbows are actually full circles reflected from raindrops. That said, if you're lucky enough to find the mysterious pot of gold, it's believed to represent the realization of one's hopes and dreams. 

Whichever meaning of the rainbow and pot of gold resonates most, they're sure to elicit positive feelings. To keep the feeling of hope, love and new beginnings close to your heart, bring Goldie the Bear into your home. Get and give the luck with Goldie the Bear. Shop here
