The Firebird Dragon
Viewed by the Chinese as a symbol of prosperity, the Firebird Dragon is also seen as a symbol of rebirth and is believed to be immortal. This is perhaps the most popular and attractive dragon in Chinese mythology. Its feathers which are quite impressive when in flight, are a rich red in colour almost like the colour of a flame of a raging fire. It is from this that the dragon gets its name, Firebird. The costume which is red and gold is a true representation of the Firebird with its red wings and gold accessories. The gold also represents the prosperity of which the Firebird is symbolic for the Chinese.
