The Chinese Lunar Calendar follows a 12-year cycle known as the Zodiac. Developed based on The Great Race when the animals of the world flocked to meet with the Jade Emperor. Each animal that arrived as assigned a position in the Chinese Lunar Calendar based on arrival at this meeting called by the Jade Emperor. The tiger, arriving third, was placed third in the cycle and represents both strength and courage.

The Republic of Palau was first settled around 3,000 years ago. Starting in the 16th century, the Spanish Empire exerted control over the islands. Following its defeat in the Spanish-American War, the islands were ceded to the German Empire, which subsequently lost control following its defeat in World War I. After Imperial Japan occupied the islands with its military between the World Wars, the United States oversaw the islands until the formation of the independent Republic of Palau in 1981. In 1994, Palau established a Compact of Free Association with the United States.
