What Do Flies Represent?

The particular significance of the fly varies depending on the culture, but it is frequently a metaphor for impending change, decay, and death. Flies feed on dead, decomposing animals, faeces, and rubbish in the natural world. This is one of the reasons why flies are frequently connected to illness or death.

Some cultures consider the presence of a fly to be a sign of impending abrupt changes in a person’s thoughts, feelings, or way of life. The precise meaning of a fly in a person’s dreams relies on what the fly is doing.

The life and death cycles are symbolised by a fly that is consuming meat. When flies consume pleasant things, it portends that the dreamer will have riches and prosperity.
