“The dragon is an animal that perfectly represents our family’s drive for excellence,” says Nestor Andrés Plasencia, chief executive officer of the family-owned company. “We look forward to celebrating the Chinese New Year with the public via this special offering.”

The Dragon symbolises power, nobleness, honour, luck and success in traditional Chinese culture. The Dragon is a supernatural being with no parallel for talent and excellence.

The Year of the Dragon holds special meaning in different cultures and is often associated with prosperity, luck and power. According to the Chinese zodiac, the dragon is one of the twelve animal signs, with each year being represented by a specific animal.

People born in the Year of the Dragon are considered to be strong, innovative and ambitious. They are believed to bring good fortune and blessing to those around them. In the Chinese mythology the dragon is a revered creature symbolising strength, wisdom and prosperity. Also known as ‘Long’ or ‘Lung’, the Chinese dragon is often depicted as a long, serpent like creature with four legs and a pearl representing wisdom.
