Dragons are deeply rooted in Chinese culture. The Chinese sign for the dragon first appeared upon turtle shields as a tribal totem way back during the Yin and Shang dynasties, and was eventually emblazed on the national flag during the Qing Dynasty [1644-1911 AD].
Only the Imperial Dragons have five toes. All others have four. Today, many people are unaware of this traditional distinction and modern depictions of five toed dragons are common.
Steeped in history the colors of blue and white are symbols of the East, the chief spirits of the spring. They represent good fortune, good health, or luck.
