Chinese Dragon & Phoenix (The dragon is not the same with the Devil or Demon dragon in the West!)

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.
