Most Eastern dragons are shown as having no wings, although they still manage to magically fly, and instead of roaring fiercely they were said to "make the sounds of bells and beating gongs." The Chinese in particular regard dragons as very noble creatures and the dragon concept is embedded in their culture, for example in dragon boat racing and in the Chinese calendar.
In Feng Shui, the symbol signifies power, wisdom, strength and is a powerful good luck symbol. In Feng Shui Dragons are seen to carry male or yang energy. Often they may be placed in the East where it symbolises new beginnings, creativity and growth. In jewellery or other decoration it is a powerful good luck symbol.
