The dragon emblem used in the dragon boat race signifies unity. This is because the dragon is said to be a combination of other animals in the Chinese zodiac: the head of an ox, the antlers of a deer, the mane of a horse, the body and scales of a snake, the claws of an eagle and the tail of a fish. Organised by the Penang State Tourism Development office, the Penang Pesta Dragon Boat Race will host teams from Hong Kong, Taipei, the US, Singapore and more.
