In Japanese and Chinese culture the Dragon is the Protector of Buddhist Law, a Symbol of Imperial Power, the Guardian of Eastern Direction, the Controller of Rain & Tempests, the Guardian of the Tide Jewels, the Bringer of Wealth & Fortune and a Magical Shape Shifter.
In ancient Chinese mythology, the people believed that there were three species of dragons; these were known as “lung” (sky), “li” (sea) and “kiau” (marsh) dragons.
Instead of being feared, these magnificent mythological creatures were admired so much that the dragon was often a symbol for imperial authority.

A little snippet of dragon history in Denmark
The King of Denmark sent the spirit of a wizard to scout for a way to invade the country. A dragon, backed up by an army of snakes and insects scared the wizard away from one region of the country. A gigantic bull, a huge bird and a mountain giant also frightened away the wizard and convinced him that the country could not be invaded.
These are known as the four landvættir, and ancient Icelanders revered them so highly, that Viking ships featuring any of these grimacing (usually dragons on the prow) weren’t allowed near shore, because they didn’t want to provoke them. Now they are on the country’s coat of arms.
