Ljubljana(Slovene:[ljuˈbljaːna]German:Laibach,Italian:Lubiana,Latin:LabacumorAemona)is thecapitaland largest city ofSlovenia.Located in the middle of a trade route between the northernAdriaticSea and theDanuberegion, it has been a historical capital of theCarniola,aSlovene-inhabited part ofAustria-Hungaryand is now the cultural, educational, economic, political and administrative center ofSlovenia, independent since 1991.Its central geographic location within Slovenia, transport connections, concentration of industry, scientific and research institutions and cultural tradition are contributing factors to its leading position.The symbol of the city is theLjubljana Dragon. It is depicted on the top of the tower of theLjubljana Castlein the Ljubljana coat-of-arms and on the Ljubljanica-crossingDragon Bridge (Ljubljana)(Zmajski most).It symbolizes power, courage, and greatness.There are several explanations on the origin of the Ljubljana Dragon. According to the Slavic myth the slaying of dragon releases the waters and ensures the fertility of the earth, and it is thought the myth in this area is tied to theLjubljana Marshes, the expansive area that has been threatening because of frequent flooding that reached Ljubljana.According to the celebratedGreek legend, theArgonautson their return home after having taken theGolden Fleecefound a large lake surrounded by a marsh between the present-day towns ofVrhnikaand Ljubljana. It is there thatJasonstruck down a monster. This monster has become thedragonthat today is present on the city coat of arms and flag.[13]It is historically more believable that the dragon was adopted fromSaint George, the patron of the Ljubljana Castle chapel built in the 15th century. In the legend of Saint George, the dragon represents the old ancestralpaganismovercome byChristianity. According to another explanation, related to the second, the dragon was at first only a decoration above the city coat of arms. InBaroque, it became part of the coat of arms and in the 19th and especially the 20th century, it outstripped the tower and other elements.5"W x 2.25 D
