But in China, dragons are totally different. They are powerful and benevolent symbols in Chinese culture, e.g. they can summon rain for people during a drought.
hinese dragons don’t exist in real life — there is no evidence to prove that they are real creatures.
- The Chinese dragon is one of the twelve Chinese zodiac signs.
- Emperors in ancient China were identified as the sons of dragons. And, at that time, ordinary people were not allowed to have items with pictures of dragons on them.
- Chinese dragons are symbolic of being lucky, propitious, powerful, and noble; not as monsters as they are portrayed in Western stories.
- As a powerful symbol, some strong people like to have dragon tattoos on their arms, legs, backs, and chests, but usually they are not regarded as very easygoing people.
- Most Chinese dragons’ pictures have long bodies like snakes and sharp claws like hawks, not like dinosaurs.
- Chinese dragons don’t have wings but they can “fly” into the sky.
- Chinese dragons don’t breathe fire but can summon rain.
- Chinese dragons live at the bottom of seas, rivers, lakes, or anywhere with water.
- Chinese people love the Chinese character for a dragon (龙 lóng /long/) and a surname with the character, e.g. famous movie stars, such as Jackie Chan (成龙 chéng long /chnng long/ ‘become dragon’) and Bruce Lee (李小龙 lǐ xiǎolong /lee sshyaoww-long/).
