New Necklace: Offensive?

Everyone says Paris is ex- pensive but I got this Islamic pendant from a store on my street for 1€50! It has two stationary flags, a tassel, and an unintelligible text on both sides.

Today is Lunar New Year's eve, and Lunar New Year is the PC term for Chinese New Year. Paris has two Chinatowns, but as with Lunar New Year, the two neighborhoods contain populations from Asia that are not exclusively Chinese. Isabelle lives just outside of one of these Asiatowns, so tonight we're having dinner at her house! I'm going to wear this necklace because it looks like a Chinese Dragon costume and most-luckily colored red. It too is based in another part of Asia.
