What Does the Year of Dragon Symbolise?

In Chinese culture, a dragon has always represented imperial power and authority. Therefore, when it comes to the year of the dragon, it symbolises power, nobility, honour, good luck, strength, and success. It is the fifth animal in the Chinese zodiac and is the only mythical creature of all the animals in the Chinese zodiac.
