The hare in African folk tales is aĀ trickster; some of the stories about the hare were retold among enslaved Africans in America, and are the basis of theĀ Br'er RabbitĀ stories. The hare appears inĀ English folkloreĀ in the saying "as mad as a March hare" and in the legend of the White Hare that alternatively tells of a witch who takes the form of a white hare and goes out looking for prey at night or of the spirit of a broken-hearted maiden who cannot rest and who haunts her unfaithful lover.

Many cultures, including the Chinese, Japanese, and Mexican, see a hare in the pattern ofĀ dark patchesĀ in theĀ moonĀ (seeĀ Moon rabbit). The constellationĀ LepusĀ is also taken to represent a hare.

The hare was once regarded as an animal sacred to Aphrodite and Eros because of its high libido. Live hares were often presented as a gift of love.Ā 

In European tradition, the hare symbolises the two qualities of swiftnessĀ and timidity.The latter once gave theĀ European hareĀ theĀ Linnaean nameĀ Lepus timidusĀ that is now limited to theĀ mountain hare. Several ancient fables depictĀ the Hare in flight;Ā inĀ The Tortoise and the Hare, perhaps the best-known amongĀ Aesop's Fables, the hare loses a race through being too confident in its swiftness. InĀ IrishĀ folklore, the hare is often associated with Sidh (Fairy) or other pagan elements. In these stories, characters who harm hares often suffer dreadful consequences.
