The Red Dragon

This red dragon figurehead was attached to the bow of a barge on the Lancaster canal at Forton in Lancashire, UK: fashioned from steel, painted in a vivid crimson and welded in place, this metallic, mythical creature gives away the barge owner’s origins, along with the Welsh flag that was fluttering on the stern of the boat as well.

Incidentally, the Welsh flag is known in the Welsh language as ‘Y Ddraig Goch’ and actually means ‘The red dragon’.
