  1. A dragon is alian to non-Mandarin cultures; to depict it as a POWER is funny and strange, what has Estonia to do with it except to print an interesting drawing, have such countries run out of interesting subjects ? Let them show Indian festivals of Sankranti, Baisakhi, Behu, Onam all Spring festivals and Divali etc of INDIA.
