Because of their speed, strength and beauty dragonflies represent swiftness and activity. The iridescence of their wings, and presence near lakes and rivers also give them a natural association with water and purity.
They have been often used as an artistic subject, with roots in traditional Japanese art, and inspiring a magical symbolism in Art Nouveau designs in the West. The ephemeral quality of the dragonfly speaks to all of us -- life is short, so one must be as brilliant and beautiful as one can in the time one has.
