The Bayeux tapestry shows two dragons, one red and one gold, at the death scene of Harold see post 2 centre picture. Why no fighting man standard? This after all was Harolds personal banner. Was the dragon used because it was the flag of the Englisc? A symbol to show the defeat of not only Harold but the Englisc? I make no assumptions of the colour or style though the two legged and winged version is used on the tapestry.
What we can be sure of is that the dragon was a popular symbol used by the Englisc. Good one mate Here is plenty of evidence of the White Dragon flag of the English existing. Thus within the original boundaries of the Roman Empire this left the Red Dragon as the symbol of authority only in the extreme West Britain and in the Eastern Roman or Byzantine Empire. Taking advantage of the newly weakened state of Britain these shores came under increasing threat of invasion by the Saxons from Denmark. Though outside the Roman Empire the Saxons had because of their contact with Roman Forces acquired the dragon as a symbol of their own.
They however had preferred a White Dragon. The next six hundred years saw battles and rivalry between the forces of the Celts with their Red Dragons and the Saxons with their White Dragons. Around these two warring forces grew the legends of Merlin and King Arthur. The History of the Welsh Flag "At any rate it became their standard, and it was beneath a White Dragon that Harold, the last English king fell, under the arrows of the Normans" Flame Bearers of Welsh History - Owen Rhoscomyl "The Welsh fought under a "golden" banner and the adoption of a White Dragon by the men of Sussex may have been merely a matter of useful distinction between the opposing forces" The Dragons - Ernest Ingersoll " The design shows the white dragon of England and the red dragon of Wales greeting each other in peace across the cross of Canterbury.
Various interpretations of the stylised carvings are possible; some believe that it might be a dragon rather than a horse. It is interesting that the hill just below the carving is called Dragon Hill The Celtic dragon represents sovereignty, power or a chief, such as Pendragon, the Celtic word meaning 'chief'. The Red Dragon of Cadwallader or Cadwaller is the emblem of Wales - 'upon a mount vert, a dragon passant, wings expanded and endorsed gules - the Red Dragon Dreadful' The Saxons had the white dragon as a royal standard.
In early Britain it depicted supreme power. In this period the banner, the sign in textile, was a crucial part of the battle. It was not to be captured for that signified defeat. There were royal standards, banners which represented, like the glove, the person of the king. The Welsh, as a distinct people, may be said to date from about the seventh century, when the advance of the Saxons to the Bristol Channel and the Mersey isolated them from the rest of Celtic Britain.
The 'Historia Brittonum,' of about A. With the relative safety of the line gone, the Huscarls formed a ring around the king. With the king were the standards of England; the Dragon standard of the line of Cerdic, the ancient House of the kings of Wessex; and the fighting man, the personal marker of Harold Godwinsson, worked with silver and gold thread upon in red and white Byzantine silk by Edith, his wife. Kindle the torch, Daughter of Hengist! A dragon was borne by the English army at the battle of Lewes in and later Henry III had a dragon standard made to be placed in the re-built Abbey at Westminster.
Henry VII displayed the red dragon of Cadwallader, from whom he claimed descent, on the Tudor colours of white and green. Until this time it was probably golden. The supporters of the English royal arms were a lion and a dragon, but the latter was replaced by a unicorn for Scotland by the Stuarts. The dragon reappeared briefly as a supporter of the arms of the Commonwealth under Cromwell. Whence came the red dragon of Cadwaladar? Why was the Welsh dragon in fables of Merddin Merlin , Wennius, and Geofrey described as red, while the Saxon 'fenris' was white?

Battles and rivalry between the forces of the Celts and the Saxons continued until eventually in the eighth century, a line was drawn by the Saxon King Offa of Mercia who built a Dyke separating what was Celtic Wales and the Red Dragon from Saxon England and their White Dragon.

Thought to have derived from the figure of the dragon encountered by Trajan's legions in Dacia, it may be the origin of the red dragon of Wales. In historic times, the Roman soldiers in England carried images or pictures of dragons as ensigns in their wars with the native Britons. If these were mainly white that fact might account for the whiteness of the emblems used by the 'Saxon' armies of the South Sussex , with which, after the Roman troops had quit England, the west-central kingdom, Wessex, was incessantly in conflict.
It is difficult to imagine the skyline bare of its presence, but on the 14th of October, it was not a many-towered abbey that broke the cold horizon, but the ominous sight of Harold's Saxon shield wall with the dragon banner of Wessex and his own personal banner of the Fighting Man, flying in the stiffening breeze of a bleak October morning. The two "dragon" banners here are supposedly the "Dragon of Wessex" Harold's banner as the earl of Wessex. His personal standard the "Fighting Man" is not depicted. It is described as jewelled and was sent as a gift to the pope by William after the battle.
The first "dragon" is going down with its bearer - out of sequence if they are meant to be the same or else the standard is picked up by another housecarle when the original bearer goes down. The "dragon" is a windsock, patterned after Carolingian types, which in turn derived from the Roman. This corresponds to pre BC, for the Etruscans had arrived by then. We're clearly dealing with the Gaul migration i.
Could the red colour of the Welsh dragon indicate Venetia, since the Tyrol symbol north of Veneto is a red dragon-like phoenix, while the Anglo-Saxon dragon is depicted as a white one? The boy says that the red dragon symbolized the people of Vortigern and the white dragon symbolizes the Saxons. Which symbolizes that in the future, the Vortigern, who are today called the Welsh, would fight the Saxons and drive them to the edge of their country and out of their land in 5th century AD, many years later.
There is a medieval map of the English "heptarchy", a period where there were seven Anglo-Saxon kingdoms at war with each other. This map, made I believe in the 12th Century after the heptarchy period is illustrated with banners of the kingdoms. Those shown for Essex, Kent and Sussex appear to be very similar to their "county standards" today, while East Anglia has three crowns on a white background, Mercia appears to have a white dragon of some kind.
One of the British leaders after the departure of the Romans was Vortigern Gwyrtheryn of Welsh legend , who may have been a native of the Welsh borders. Certainly the kings of Powys claimed him as an ancestor. It was Vortigern who is blamed for inviting Saxon mercenaries into Britain to help maintain order in the period following the departure of Roman troops. When the money ran out to pay the mercenaries, they rebelled and over the course of several centuries, took over control of large sections of Britain from the Romano-British.
Just to confuse matters the Saxons also liked the idea of a dragon which they saw when fighting romans cohorts in Europe and had adopted the white dragon as their symbol. At one time, the Saxons had a dragon too, a white one, and legend has it that in Eryri Snowdonia there was a battle between the two, the White Dragon winning at first then losing as the Red Dragon found renewed strength.
This was supposed to foretell a time when the Welsh would drive out the Saxon invaders perhaps their survival as a separate people against heavy odds is a sort of fulfilment of that prophecy.

For a long time he shall suffer woe and be driven into hiding by the White Dragon, who signifies the Saxons whom you have invited into the Island. For a little space the Red Dragon shall conquer, when King Arthur rules this land: but when he passes into Avalon, the White Dragon shall triumph wholely, and the Saxons shall rule all Britain. Yet at the last Arthur shall return, and the Red Dragon of Wales conquer the White and set his country free.
Wales is symbolised by a red dragon. In the Mabinogion the tale of Lludd and Llewelys speaks of the struggle between this red dragon and the white dragon. It was long ago in the days of the Saxon invasions that this story takes place and it is no wonder that the white dragon is the invader, the Saxons, come to battle the red. As the symbolic struggle comes to a close, the two opposing dragons become drunk with mead. It is in this drunken state that they are both buried in a large stone coffin and placed to rest in the centre of the island of Britain.

The story goes that so long as the pair remain buried beneath Oxford the island will be protected from invasion. The dual burial is a symbol of the latent power within the combined strength of the Anglo-Saxons people. Therefore the double burial is key to their reconciliation. The bloody relations have been calmed and the dragons wait to rise together in protection of the island. The White Horse was the symbol of the invading Saxons. The pool is the emblem of this world, and the tent that of your kingdom: the two serpents are two dragons; the red serpent is your dragon, but the white serpent is the dragon of the people who occupy several provinces and districts of Britain, even almost from sea to sea: at length, however, our people shall rise and drive away the Saxon race from beyond the sea, whence they originally came.
England has many flags, each representing each county, that date back to the Anglo Saxon invasion, with dragons being a popular theme. The current flag of England is the flag of Saint George, the 'dragon slayer'. The flag consists of a red cross on a white background and was first worn by the English King Richard 'The Lionheart' Plantagenet and his English Knights on the Third Crusade in the 12th century. The white dragon flag consisted of a white dragon on a blood red background.
Even though the Saint George flag is the official flag of England, the 'White Dragon Flag' is still in use and is still very popular amongst the English who some of which would like to have it re instated as the official flag of England. It is believed to feature on the Bayeux Tapestry. The White Dragon Flag is not used in any official capacity and was phased out of popular use.
