Flag of the Draco the Dragon and Phoenix the Firebrid - The Dragon and Phoenix

Draco & Phoenix
The Dragon and The Firebird

The next harmonious pair is the mythical Phoenix and Dragon.  Nearly every culture has a legend about dragons and some kind of mystical bird with Magical powers.  Likewise both mystical creatures are associated with fire.  The Dragon Breathes fire while the Phoenix rises from the ashes of a fire.  It is kind of fighting fire with fire.

On one last modest level, both their names in 'English' have silly subs for the initial sounds. Legend has it, if you spell Dragon with a natural J or Phoenix with an F, you'll attract the unwanted attention of angry dragons and territorial phoenixes.

Interestingly both constellations are on opposite teams of our Galactic Disk.  Draco is allied with the Galactic Super Cluster Capitol Galaxy M-87, within Virgo's Golden Grain.  On the other hand, Phoenix is on Andromeda's side with a clear view to our closest Galactic Twin - Andromeda Galaxy.

The flag of the Draco the Dragon is composed of several colours: black, violet, indigo, blue, green, white, red, and navy blue. The colours denote the celestial latitude (Declination).  Since the Dragon passes into the 80 degree celestial polar regions, its time chart is navy blue and it has black stripe up top. 

The flag of Phoenix the Firebird is composed of the colours yellow, green, blue, black, and white.  Since it is best visible during the months of October and November the signs of Libra and Scorpio are present. 
Note that the Dragon and Phoenix is a popular dish in American-Chinese Restaurants.  It is usually composed of chicken and shrimp, most often General Tso's Chicken and Sweet and South Shrimp.  You can imagine the shrimp looking like little water dragons while the chicken is the distant relative of the phoenix.  

The colours indicate the celestial latitude while the zodiac signs tell us the celestial longitude.  The Celestial Sphere is basically the cosmos in a ball.  You have to step outside the universe to understand its dynamics.  It's similar to globe but puts the universe in a sphere.
