The Chinese dragon spelled Long, Loong, or Lung in transliteration , is a Chinese mythical creature that also appears in other East Asian cultures, and thus is also sometimes called the Oriental or Eastern dragon. Unlike the Western dragon of Europe that is representative of evil , the many eastern versions of the dragon are powerful spiritual symbols, representing seasonal cycles and supernatural forces. The Chinese dragon is easily recognizable for its long serpentine body that is generally wingless, and its anthropomorphic face, complete with beard. In some eastern cultures, the dragon plays an integral part in creation mythology. Generally, the oriental dragon is benevolent and powerful, bringer of good fortune. Its image was often adopted by emperors as a sacred symbol of power.

List of dragons in mythology and folklore
Dragons are important mythological creatures in Chinese culture. Entertaining and decorative dragon costumes often make an appearance in performances during certain celebrations, such as National Day and Chinese New Year. These costumes and the creatures they represent have large symbolic significance. The legends that surround Chinese dragons are intriguing and occasionally even surprising.
A mythical beast with a combination of reptilian and serpentine traits, the Dragon features in the legends of several cultures the world over. Although the dragons of the East and the West have quite similar physical characteristics, their symbolic representations are drastically different and, in a way, indicate the cultural differences between these civilizations. The most notable difference between the Asian and European dragons is that while the European folklore has portrayed the dragons as evil, fearsome and malevolent creatures, the Asian cultures regard them as benevolent beings.
