A dragon is a legendary creature, typically with serpentine or reptilian traits, that features in the myths of many cultures. There are two distinct cultural traditions of dragons: the European dragon, derived from European folk traditions and which is ultimately related to Greek and Middle Eastern mythologies, and the Chinese dragon, with counterparts in Japan, Korea and other East Asian countries.

A dragon is a mythological representation of a reptile. In antiquity, dragons were mostly envisaged as serpents, but since the Middle Ages, it has become common to represent them with legs, similar to a lizard.

A Dragon totem is one of the most powerful totems, representing a huge range of qualities, emotions, and traits. When Dragons come to us, it could mean many things.
The most common message a Dragon totem carry to us is a need for strength, courage, and fortitude. Dragons are also messengers of balance, and magic - encouraging us to tap into our psychic nature and see the world through the eyes of mystery and wonder.
In Chinese culture, the season of the Dragon is mid-spring, its direction is east-southeast, and its fixed element is wood.
it is said to be the most potent symbol of good fortune in the Chinese pantheon of symbols.

  1. and why is the symbol that represents Ireland? Good job although I expect more in a work about dragons because there is a lot of information about them.
    Well done. Good job.
