Dragon of Ljubljana. The Ljubljana dragon is part of the City of Ljubljana’s coat of arms. It symbolises strength, courage and might. It is depicted on the Dragon Bridge and on top of the castle tower on Ljubljana’s coat of arms. The Ljubljana dragon may have its origins in the legend of Jason and the Argonauts.
Jason and his argonauts battle the Army of the Dragon's Teeth, from "Jason and the Argonauts" (1963); Ray Harryhausen's masterpiece.
Ladon (Greek: Λάδων; gen.: Λάδωνος) was the serpent-like dragon that twined and twisted around the tree in the Garden of the Hesperides and guarded the golden apples. He was overcome by Heracles. The following day, Jason and the Argonauts passed by on their chthonic return journey from Colchis and heard the lament of "shining" Aegle, one of the four Hesperides, and viewed the still-twitching Ladon.
