The green dragon may be a reference to the Earl of Pembroke and appears on their coat of arms. William de la Pole, 1st Duke of Suffolk was an important medieval English soldier and commander in the Hundred Years' War and later Lord Chamberlain of England. He was created Earl of Pembroke in 1447 and Duke of Suffolk in 1448. It can also be a reference to an alcoholic beverage made by leaching the leaves or stems of the cannabis plant in alcohol, most commonly gin.
