Some legends said that when Vietnamese people established the country, they were invaded by foreign invaders, The Jade Emperor appointed Mother Dragon and her Child Dragons down to help the Vietnam to fight. Invaders' boats from the sea entered massively to the shore, at that same time Dragons landed on earth. Dragons immediately ejected a lot of pearls and turned into thousands of rocky islands on the sea creating a solid wall to block the enemy warships. Enemy ships were moving fast then blocked suddenly, they crashed into the rocky islands or smashed together and broke into pieces.
