The Celtic dragon represents sovereignty and power. The Welsh dragon was used in the Royal Arms in the sixteenth century and the Red Dragon of Cadwallader is the emblem on the national flag of Wales. The red dragon gained popularity due to it supposed link of being the battle standard of King Arthur and other ancient Celtic leaders.During the reigns of the Tudor monarchs, the red dragon was used as a supporter in the English Crown's coat of arms. At the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen, ten heraldic beasts stood guard. The Queens Beasts, sculpted by James Woodford RA for the coronation ceremony held in Westminster Abbey in 1953, stand six feet tall. The heraldic creatures symbolized the various strands of royal ancestry brought together in a young woman about to be crowned queen. Each proud beast, used as a heraldic badge by generations that went before her, was inspired by the Kings Beasts of Henry VIII that still line the bridge over the moat at his Hampton Court Palace.
