Loong, also named Chinese Dragon, is a legendary creature in Chinese mythology and Chinese folklore. Traditionally, Loong symbolizes potent and auspicious powers, particularly controlling over water and rainfall. Hence, from “Ancestral Loong” Fuxi and Nüwa, the legendary ancestors of Chinese with loong bodies and human heads 5000 thousand years ago, to Yan Emperor and Huang Emperor, then to generations of emperors in China, loong is often used as the symbol of imperial power and strength. Also, loong is a cultural symbol of Chinese, who are claimed to be "the loong descendants". Derived from all the above, the creation of “Loongese” came out.
