Chinese dragons or East Asian dragons are legendary creatures in Chinese mythology, Chinese folklore, and East Asian culture at large. East Asian dragons have many animal-like forms such as turtles and fish, but are most commonly depicted as snake-like with four legs. They traditionally symbolize potent and auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, typhoons, and floods. The dragon is also a symbol of power, strength, and good luck for people who are worthy of it in East Asian culture. During the days of Imperial China, the Emperor of China usually used the dragon as a symbol of his imperial power and strength.
There was once a Fengshui Master shares with me. For Chinese Dragons, only Emperor can wear Dragons symbol with 5 claws, so it is not suitable for normal folks to wear anything with Dragon with 5 claws. The next Supreme dragon with 4 claws. The 3 claws Dragons are common Dragons.
