Le Dragon est un symbole de haute autorite et de pouvoir imperial. Fifure mythique d'origine chinoise, le dragon (yong) renvoie au monde celeste, a celui des oceans ainsi qu'aux regions ou l'on accede a une nouvelle vie, en une mue evoquee par sa partie en forme de serpent. Aussi, cet, animal enorme et puissant symbolise-t-il les forces de la nature, surtout celle de l'eau, evoquee par le poisson avec lequel il est souvent represente'. Avec son expression menacante, il eloigne les esprits malfaisants.
