The Year of the Dragon is one of the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac. The Dragon is holding the Chinese symbol for Dragon.
This design is for stickers and light-colored clothing; if you want a darker colored shirt, try this version instead.
Dragon people are said to be self-assured, passionate, and ambitious. You are probably a Dragon if you were born in 2000, 1988, 1976, 1964, 1952, 1940, or 1928, but double-check the exact dates if your birthday is in mid-January to mid-February because the Lunar New Year is on a different date each year. Wikipedia’s Chinese Zodiac page is a good starting point for more information about all of the signs and their meanings.
