The dragon is an important symbol, not only in China but throughout the world.
In China, dragons are associated with wealth, power, and leadership.

The legend of the Chinese phoenix states that it is the mythical king of all birds. With the head of a peacock, body of a swan and wings of a golden cockerel, they are believed to be messengers of happiness.
Incidentally, the Chinese phoenix is not related to the bird that we know in the Western world that rises from the ashes and symbolises rebirth.
The phoenix appears on historical objects dating back thousands of years, suggesting that its origins stretch back to the very beginning of Chinese culture.
It was once believed to only appear during times of peace and prosperity, and that rare treasures would be found where they stopped to rest.
The phoenix can face any adverse environment and prosper among difficulties.
In Feng Shui, the Phoenix is considered very auspicious. This is one of the celestial animals in feng shui which is very good to bring money luck and good fortune.
