USPS celebrates Dragons, the fire-breathing mythological creatures that have roamed our imagination for thousands of years with this 2018 new release of Forever Stamps. The four designs present a green fire-breathing dragon towering over a medieval-inspired castle; a purple dragon with orange wings and sharp black armor on its back snaking around a white castle; a black dragon with green wings and green armor on its back swooping past a ship on the sea; and a wingless orange dragon weaving its way around a pagoda. Throughout history and across the globe-from Europe to the Middle East to Asia to the Americas-people have enjoyed tales of mythological creatures. Though these legendary animals vary in shape, size and color, they?re most often described as lizard-like with four legs, sharp claws, scales, wings and spiky tails. The wingless orange dragon weaving its way around a pagoda is inspired by creatures found in Asian art, architecture, folk religion and ancient lore. European folklore inspired the dragons on the purple dragon with orange wings and sharp black armor on its back, and the green fire-breathing dragon.
