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 and Culture, the Penang Pesta Dragon Boat Race will host 40 teams from all over the globe, such as Hong Kong, Chinese Taipei, the US and Singapore.
