Rode Envelop

A red envelope, as gifted with money on Chinese New Year or on other joyous occasions, such as weddings, in Chinese and some other Asian cultures around the world.

Depicted as a red, vertical envelope with a gold design, typically featuring the Chinese character 福 (, “good fortune, luck, happiness"). Google’s design previously featured the character upside down, indicating “good luck arrives.”

Often used to celebrate and wish good fortune on Chinese New Year (Lunar New Year, Spring Festival). Also used to represent gifts, celebration, Chinese culture, and the color red more generally.
