Why is the dragon shown on most Oriental Pottery Items? 

Historically, the Chinese dragon was associated with the Emperor of China and used as a symbol to represent imperial power. The founder of the Han dynasty Liu Bang claimed that he was conceived after his mother dreamt of a dragon. ... The dragon in the Qing dynasty appeared on the first Chinese national flag.
