The symbols are called "Four Symbols", "四象" as Chinese Character.

四象在中國傳統文化中指青龍、白虎、朱雀、玄武,分別代表東西南北四個方向。在二十八宿中,四象用來劃分天上的星星,也稱四星、四靈、四聖獸。

中國傳統方位是以南方在上方,和現代以北方在上方不同,所以描述四象方位,又會說左青龍(東)、右白虎(西)、前朱雀(南)、後玄武(北)來表示。

Each one of them represents a direction and a season of the year, and each has its own individual characteristics and origins. They have been portrayed in many historical Chinese myths and fiction, and also appear in as well as modern Japanese comic books and animation.
