Chinese Dragons

Chinese dragons are a symbol of power, strength and good fortune and are often considered yang; the phoenix, often seen with the dragon, is considered yin.  Dragons were long seen as the symbol of the emperors of China, with royal palaces, pottery, clothing, etc. often bearing dragon symbols.  In Tainan, some of the temple rooftops have particularly elaborate dragons that are quite amazing to see.
