BEHOLD THE GREAT RED DRAGON:

Hi to all,

I have a question concerning a particular scene from the 2002 movie Red Dragon, featuring Ed Norton as Will Graham, and its when Graham climbs a tree to have a better view of the Jacobis' house and notice a strange symbol that may be the killer's signature:

If anyone could tell me the signaficance of this symbol, I will be thankful.

Looks like that might be the symbol on the Red Dragon Mah Jongg tile.

Thanx. I've been wondering about its significance.
it says it in the book actually and I believe in the movie too...it's a chinese Mah Jong symbol that means "The Red Dragon tile on which is written the symbol zhong1 "middle" symbolize the Man in the middle of the heaven and the earth."
You can look up more information by googling 'Mah Jong symbols' and 'Red Dragon chinese symbol'
Thanx ^-^
The symbol means Dragon.
