Sign for the Red Dragon
Sign for the Red Dragon
The dragon is one of Britain's oldest heraldic charges. Before William the Conqueror it was the standard of the West Saxons. In the Bayeux tapestry a dragon on a pole is shown near King Harold. It was also a supporter on the arms of Henry VII and other Tudor sovereigns. There are Green Dragons, White Dragons and Red Dragons and the colour choice may have heraldic connections but equally well may be a traditional choice with the original reason for the colour choice lost in history.
