The word "dragon" comes from the ancient Greek word "draconta," meaning "to watch," as they are typically shown guarding treasure such as mountains of gold coins or gemstones. Dragons are among the most popular and enduring of the world's mythological creatures. The dragon is one of the twelve Chinese zodiac signs. They are considered powerful and benevolent symbols in China, they are considered lucky and good — quite different to the evil, dangerous, fire-breathing dragons of most Western stories.
