According to legend, on one particular New Year, the Emperor of Jade summoned all the animals in creation to a mysterious meeting, promising them a special reward. Only 12 animals responded to the invitation. The Emperor then gave each of the twelve a year of their own, numbered in the order of their arrival, and that year would carry their name forever. The fifth sign is the Dragon, the only mythological animal to be included in the Chinese zodiac.

2012 will be the year of the Dragon, the legendary founder of Chinese civilisation, guardian of the elements across the successive dynasties, and symbol of perseverance and success. To celebrate this year and confirm its admiration for Chinese culture, Caran d’Ache, Maison de Haute Ecriture, has created a new, prestigious writing instrument with a powerful character and full of positive virtues.
