Perhaps no civilizaiion has given
to a mythical monster so varied a
significance as we have to the
dragon. The dragon appears in religion, superstition, art, science, government, and commerce. It permeates every phase of our life, visible and invisible, natural and supernatural, sacred and profane. Ii
abounds in the lore of poetry and prose, legendary history, Buddhism
and Taoism. Il is associated with
everything mysterious and symbolizes earthly omnipotence. Before the
Republic of China was established it
was the symbol of Imperial power;
the Emperor's mind by which he
guided the nation was the Dragon's
Wisdom; the Emperor's hand by
which he grasped the symbol of
authority was the Dragon's Claw;
the Emperor's eye by which he
watched his people was the Dragon's
Eye; the Emperor's children were
Dragon's Seed; the Emperor's throne
was the Dragon's Throne; and the
Emperor, dying, "mounted the
Dragon and ascended on high."
When China, hitherto without a flag,
opened its eyes to the patriotic
menagerie in which were the British
lion, the French cock, the American
eagle, and the German double-headed
bird, it adopted the dragon as its
emblem, emblazoning it on a background of yellow and giving it five ■ .
