Dragon and Phoenix

    dragon_and_phoenix

    The most prominent of all Chinese marriage symbols is the pairing of a dragon (long 龙) and a phoenix (feng 凤) which represents love and a happy marriage.

    The dragon is the preeminent male or yang (阳) symbol and represents strength and the warmth of the sun.

    The phoenix, as you might expect, is the ultimate female or yin (阴) symbol.
