We investigate chiral properties of local fields of baryons consisting of three quarks with flavor SU(3) symmetry. We construct explicitly independent local threequark fields belonging to definite Lorentz and flavor representations. We discuss some implications of the allowed chiral symmetry representations on physical quantities such as axial coupling constants and chiral invariant Lagrangians. We also systematically investigate chiral properties of local scalar tetraquark currents, and study their chiral transformation properties.
